Jump On It July - Paper Bird Card (With Techniques!)

I'm pretty sure Paper Bird is the favorite hostess rewards stamp set of my customer friends, because this is the one you've all been getting for July's special! So this card is for all of you. :)

Inspiration: The layering trend! I see it everywhere, and I wanted to try my hand at it.

Techniques: Layering is all about building up smaller elements from a larger base. I used the dove-tailed Blossom B&T paper as my starting point, and then I just added on from there. Tip - Use 3-D foam tape not only for dimension, but also to make it easier to tuck elements under your layers. 

Another cool technique? I flicked the edges of the white circle with Versa mark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder before heating. It's like ink edging with embossing.

Fun Fact: The hardest part of this card for me was figuring out where in the heck to put the sentiment. I tried at least 10 different variations.
