Last weekend I was thrilled to have a crafting friend who used to live a mile away but then moved to North Carolina, come visit and we attended the Adventures in Stamping convention in Akron together. Of course, last years convention was cancelled due to Covid but they managed to have it this year although far different from past years. With only 25 vendors vs 100 ... lots of space between and everyone was required to wear a mask.
After getting home from convention, I spent the evening putting together 2 of the 3 packs (10 in each pack) of toppers so I'd have them ready when I was ready. Of course, being a bird lover and truly enjoy seeing the gold finch at my feeders, I just had to make a card using this beauty.
A couple of them I used dimensional tabs between the layers but then decided that might be a little too much dimension for easy mailing so went with just adhering the layers together and I think it looks just fine!
The dies I've used for my design are:
I've also used Mintay by Karola - Springtime designer paper, Prima flowers and Nuvo crystal drops.
I've created the circle in which to perch this pretty bird topper by die cutting the Tutti scallop circle three times. One for the back panel and two for the stacked frame. The frame was created by die cutting 2 larger circles then die cutting them again with the next smaller die and using just the frame portion which was glued together for dimension.
I'm sure you'll be seeing more cards using these toppers in the weeks to come. They are fabulous for any occasion! I also have FLOWERS & HORSES to play with so that will be fun!!
My crafty friend Sandy & I also spent several days during the week she was in Ohio creating together in my crafting cave. She was kind enough to bring along her latest Heartfelt Creations dies and showed me how to make an AMAZING basket. As soon as I get some good photos I will be sharing that with you. Wait until you see it ...
Well, that's it for today ... hope you're having a fabulous week!
