Barbara: Home Tweet Home

A friend recently purchased a new home. She is so excited to start a new chapter in her life with her four children in their new home. A surprise housewarming/birthday party was held. This is the card that I made for this special occasion. The three pink birdies represent her girls and of course the blue birdie is for her son. Mom is the mama bird on the front of the frame Proudly introducing her young ins!! I made this frame card larger that usual so that she could display it, if she desired.

The front of the card as well as the background for the birdhouse and the Mama bird was cut using a Spellbinder Labels die. All of the images are free digi stamps. The pink background for the Mama bird was embossed using a cuttlebug folder. All the birdies and Mama were popped up for dimension.

DP, Ribbon, Flower: Michael's
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Punches for sentiment and sentiment background: Stampin Up
Colored and shaded with Copic Markers
Bling: Gell Roll pen

I hope that you enjoyed viewing my blog and are inspired to try a frame card. It truly is very easy to make. Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog.
