Swirly Bird – Clean and Simple

I’m enjoying a relaxing day today with almost no commitments on my time and getting a little excited.  Most of my family is coming in tomorrow evening!  I love when we can get together but, with everyone’s schedule the last couple of years we haven’t seen as much of each other as I would like.  Other than spending a little time today planning a cold picnic dinner, I have the whole day.  It might be time to find a new book!  But first, this morning I put together a quick, clean and simple card.

I finally had time to play with my Swirly Bird stamps.

LOVE them!

Swirly Bird clean and simple card from theartfulinker.com

This is a perfect, reproducible “thank you” card.  Lovely — but not complicated!

I’ve started with a standard 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Bermuda Bay cardstock base scored and folded in the middle.

Then, I did my stamping on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White piece of cardstock.

The first image was placed in the lower left — it was inked in Pool Party.  I stamped a second of the same image on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out to use as a mask.

After placing the mask over the Pool Party image, I stamped the next pair of images in Bermuda Bay.  By masking the first image, it creates the illusion that the next pair of images sit behind the first image.

Next, I added the three swirls in Crushed Curry followed by Wild Wasabi pairs of leaves.

Using the small scribble die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay to adhere to the Pool Party image.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen was perfect for the delicate lines.

Finally, I stamped “Thank You” from Rose Wonder in Pool Party before adhering the Whisper White panel to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
