Fly and Be Free

Hi everyone!  Today I've got a fun encouragement card to share using the Birds of a Feather stamp set from this month's Creative Cafe KOTM:

Base: 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" kraft cardstock.

First Layer:  4&1/2" by 4&1/4" piece of wood grain patterned paper.  Glue about 3/4" from the left edge of the base card.  Apply film strip rub-on to the left side of card (HINT:  leave the backing on the rub-on, trim off what you want, then remove backing, and apply the piece you need to the card and rub on).

Next Layer:  Cut a 4&1/4" by 3/4" piece of white cardstock.  Glue a piece of seam binding around it, and add a bow.  Glue to left side of wood grain patterned paper.

Center Panel:  Cut a 2&3/4" by 3&1/4" piece of newsprint word paper, and mat on a 3" by 3&1/2" piece of white cardstock.  Foam tape to card front.

Stamp sentiments on white cardstock using Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, punch out circles (3/4" and 1"), add doodling to circles if desired.

Stamp clouds using Weathered Wood Distress Ink, fussy cut out.

Use camera and film strip rub-ons on white cardstock and trim down (camera piece is approx. 1&1/2" by 1&1/4", banner is approx. 11/16" wide by 1&1/2" long). Glue all pieces to card front as shown using Scrap Happy Glue.  Foam tape "be free" and "xoxo" circles.

Thanks for stoppin' by today....hope you are enjoying this month's kit inspiration!
