Beautiful Birch

Another design using my Birch Land stamp set. I need several thank you cards, but I want them all to be a bit different. I used my MISTI to help set this card up. With the top panel on top of the card base I lined my card up with the grid pattern paper and placed my magnets accordingly. I use 110lb Neenah cardstock, so those magnets play an important role in keeping everything where I put it. I stamped the tree using Memento London Fog on the top panel, then removed it and stamped the tree on the card base. I have a mask of the tree from a previous card I did, so I put it in place and started stamping my leaves using my acrylic block as I was turning and using different colours as I went. I then placed the top panel on top along with my mask and continued the stamping. I wanted a bird that was flying so I went on the hunt through my stamps and found one from an October Afternoon stamp set that I have had for years. I placed it on the card front, found a thank you that I liked to add to my card front and picked them both up with my MISTI. I inked the bird with the base colour and inked the sentiment with the London Fog and stamped. I removed the sentiment, and added some of the deeper orange to the bird and stamped adding a bit more colour to the bird until I was happy. The top panel was attached to the card base on foam dots to finish and I am quite happy with the results. Thanks for having a look today.
