I started by cutting a 4.75 x 6" card base from Night of Navy. I cut a matte from a pin-striped paper from the Floral Boutique DSP and a smaller strip from a mostly navy design paper. These were adhered together using Fast Fuse.
Using the Beautiful Branches Thinlits, I die cut the tree from Night of Navy. I cut the bird from Thick Whisper White as well as a strip of paper which I ran through my paper crimper. It is hard to see in the pictures but it does add a nice bit of dimension to the card.
The tree was adhered to the matte using rolled up Glue Dots and then the crimped strip was adhered to the DSP matte and a length of Night of Navy Baker's Twine was tied around it. The matte was then adhered to the card front. I used a Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker to give the bird a tree and then it was adhered to the tree using Glue Dots.
The sentiment from the Bunches of Blossoms stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy on Thick Whisper White. The Layering Squares Framelits were used to die cut the sentiment and other mattes from both Thick Whisper White and Night of Navy card stock. Each square and scalloped square were adhered using liquid adhesive and then adhered together using Dimensionals. They were adhered to the card front using Fast Fuse.
For the inside of the card, a leaf was stamped on Whisper White card stock and then a leaf die cut from Night of Navy was adhered beside it using Glue Dots. A sponge dauber was used to ink the edges before adhering the matte using Fast Fuse.
