Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday {Wedding Wishes}

Hello and welcome to this week's Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday post! I always love this post because it gives me the opportunity to pull out some of my favorite older sets! Today I will be sharing two {almost} identical cards using the amazing Songbirds Stamp Set and the coordinating Songbirds Die Collection, which are now back in stock! Yay! I made THIS project a few months ago for my Keeping Christmas series and the dies were sold out, so I am happy to say they are available now!

Wedding season is in full swing and I am in need of a card using this beautiful Enchanted Evening color paired with Sweet Blush. I also created an identical thank you card because it's just as easy to make one as it is to make two! ha ha!
To begin this design, I cut two panels of Sweet Blush cardstock which measure 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I used the Nesting Basics: Pierced Rectangle dies, which are also back in stock, to give the edge that pierced detail that I love so much! I also created an oval in the same way using the Nesting Basics: Pierced Ovals and the Nesting Basics: Oval die

I die cut the music shape using the Songbirds die collection out of white cardstock as well as the base for each of the two larger birds. The leaf clusters are die cut out of Ripe Avocado cardstock and the birds are die cut from Enchanted Evening cardstock {linked above}. 

Before I began assembling the card, I stamped the "thank you" and "wedding wishes" sentiments at the bottom of the Sweet Blush panels using black ink. Once that was done, and I had stamped the music image, I was able to get to work assembling the rest of the cards.

The thing that I love about the Songbirds stamp and die collection is that you can use the die cuts by themselves for a different look, or use the coordinating stamped images in the more traditional way. I chose to do more die cutting for these two designs. I used liquid glue to adhere the leaves and the blue birds to the white bases. Once that was done, I used foam squares to adhere everything else. The base layer is popped up as well to give it some added dimension.

Once all of the die cut pieces were added, I used some White Nuvo drops here and there to look like berries coming off of the leaf sprigs. The sparkling clear sequins were added using liquid glue as well.

I added Shimmer Spray once the photos were taken since it can be distracting in the photos, but it gives a beautiful shine in real life! I had so much fun making these two cards! This Songbirds stamp set would be perfect to create a set of all-occasion note cards to give as a gift! Thanks for fluttering by!
