Bluebirds and Paris

Here are a few gift card sets for a wedding! The bride owns the Bluebird Candy Dish Company, so I thought a set of simple bluebird cards would be perfect. I love how simple and elegant they are ... just like the candy dishes she sells! This has become one of my favorite card designs lately. The focal point, in this case the bluebird, hangs slightly over the edge of the card allowing the pretty scallop edge inside to show. Simple technique ... adds so much flair!
I think they will also enjoy the next set of cards since they are honeymooning in Paris! Same card design with a new theme.
I did use a stipple brush very lightly over the stamped design while it was still in the spellbinders die. And I dyed my own scrunched seam binding to match each card set.
Weddings and honeymoons --- so fun!
