Mother's Day birds
I wanted to use the Martha Stewart birds border punch. On this card, I also used a Spellbinders border die along the bottom of the blue cardstock. I added the Lattice Chain from a punch by EK Success, the topped it with a white Daisy Chain from another EK Success Punch. To create a better focal point, I added the 3 flowers from the Brides section at Michaels and put a gem in the center of each. Next, I stamped the Happy Mother's Day with an unmounted stamp.
I felt that the card was weighted too much on the right side, so I made another card, using a cream colored Daisy Chain and moved the Brides flowers and the sentiment closer to the center.
Which card do you like better? I think I like the second one and will probably make a few more of those.
This idea started with the this post where I tried to re-work a previously made card, using the Card Design Seminar. I'm planning to work on this idea more in the future.
