I started by adhering a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a 4" by 5-1/4" Basic Black Card Stock mat. I then adhered this to a Pool Party Card Stock card base. Easy peasy!
Next, I cut a Stitched Nested Label--purposely cutting off the top--from Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped both the sentiment and the bird from the "Free As A Bird" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the bird with Light Pool Party and Light Sea Foam Green Stampin' Blend Markers. I wrapped some White Baker's Twine around this piece several times and then adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I thought the card needed a little something, so I tried a Pearlized Doily. I didn't like either the flat or shiny sides--then I thought about coloring it with a Light Basic Black Stampin' Blend! I tried the shiny side first, but didn't like that either, so I tried coloring the flat site--that's the ticket! I tucked this under the label, adhering it with a little strategically placed Snail Adhesive. I added two tiny Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card as a finishing touch.
