If there was one object, living or otherwise, beyond the scope of my family, that instantly makes me feel happy, safe, secure...it is a bluebird. Bluebirds will always hold a special place in my heart.
I've got a fun Just Because card that is reminiscent of a bluebird. I used the Lifestyle Crafts Quick Cuts Feather Die. Nothing fancy, I just ran a piece of white cardstock with the die taped in place evenly and let the layout of the die do all the work. Kind of cool, huh? After the white panel was adhered to the card base and the sentiment stamped, I went back and ran some other monochromatic blue cardstock through with the Feather Die and adhered them on to the card base as well, with the exception of the large teal feather. That was first scored down the middle and bent slightly before being glued on.
Lifestyle Crafts has given me a code to share with you...enter the keyword DRAGONFLY for 20% off! Now is a grand time to check things out over there because they are celebrating some great news and are sharing their excitement with a free shipping offer.
Now I know I won't be seeing any bluebirds around these parts for a couple of months, so I'll have to stick with creating some cards that make me feel happy, and this one does.
