Vintage Vogue 2 Step Bird



This card is using the lovely Vintage Vogue set and my favourite colour combination - Whisper White and Tempting Turquoise. One of my layers is the top note die and i have stamped directly into one of the corners creating a triangle effect. I have stamped the greeting from Heard from the Heart at an angle with a strip of ribbon across. I have punched the 2 step bird out of vellum and sponged on the back to create a subtle effect using sponge daubers.

Stamp Sets : vintage vogue, heard from the heart

Ink: pacific point, baja breeze, cert celery, tempting turquoise

Paper: whisper white, tempting turquoise, vellum

Accessories: big shot, top note die, 2 step bird punch, tempting turquoise grosgrain ribbon
