Heartfelt Creations - Blue Bird and Blooms

Good Evening All! Hope you are all well and keeping safe in this January weather. I got soaked this morning and my umbrella was blown inside out.  My niece's umbrella broke and ended up stuck in her hair!  Was very glad to get home for a nice hot cup of tea!
As it is Wednesday, here is my project this week for Heartfelt Creations.  I took a photo of my work in progress once again at the start.  So from this.....

to this very CAS card.

Card Size :    12cm x 12 1/2cm (4 3/4" x 5").
Dry emboss a piece of white card using the brick wall embossing folder.  Cut down to measure 
11 1/2cm x 12cm (4 1/2" x 4 5/8").  Run your scissors down the sides of the card to create a rough edge. Add to the main cardfront using foam pads. Select the message topper shown from the paper collection and die cut using the matching die.  Go around the edges with a light blue promarker. Add to the main card with foam pads.  Stamp the blossoming branch image onto white card using black memento ink, die cut using the matching die and colour using promarkers.  Shape the flowers using the shaping tools and add the blue beads to the centres. Add to the card using foam pads behind the branches and leaves, but glue the flowers direct to the card. Stamp the bird onto white card using black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Die cut using the matching die, colour with the promarkers.  Adhere to the card using foam pads to complete.

As always, the products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog,

Thanks for visiting me today,
