Graphic 45 Bird Song Card

A quick post: Here's a card I received using the graphic Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection whose paper I absolutely love. This paper makes a great card.  Card is a cherry card stock base but the front has a black card stock mat.  The strips in the Graphic 45 Bird Song paper collection really work well on this card.  If you are not familiar with the paper collection, the paper strips are Incorporated into the top and on the right side.

I love how the fans from the paper are used for embellishments under the gold paper roses. 

 The Shanghai Girl is hand cut, then popped with foam squares.

Old Man Party Birthday Card

This is a A2 birthday card for a long time friend. This was a perfect card good for many people.  It is whimsical but sends a good message, too.  The Old Man Party is a SVG cut file from SVGcutting found here. Ovals are using Spellbinders Large Oval dies. Pattern paper is from a DCWV photo mat stack.  Of course, basic black card stock for the base is typical along with a blue card stock mat. Use a black pen to do some "hand stitching" around the mats for just a little texture.
A closer look at the Old Man here: He is popped with foam squares. A white gel pen is used to put some dots on the hat.  The white gel pen is also used on his pant and slippers for some stitching, too.  His nose is popped with foam squares. Use a little brown ink to sponge around his shirt.
 Card inside: double mat of blue and white card stock.  Stamps are from Papertrey Ink Good Times collection  found here.
