Mid Challenge Inspiration

There is still one more week to get in on the challenge over at the Clear It Out Challenge Blog.  If you want to read all the details on the current challenge please click here.

Last weekend was my father-in-laws birthday so I made him this card.  It’s always really hard to make masculine cards but I’m happy with the way this one turned out.

The image is from Digi Darla, our second sponsor for this challenge.  I added the sentiment underneath the branch and then cut the whole thing out with my Cameo Silhouette.

I used my copics to color it:

  • Birds – B04/06
  • Branch – E35/37
  • Leaves – YG61/63

I used my Cameo to cut some octagons out of patterned paper and made a honeycomb pattern from them.

In order to get my honeycombs evenly placed I created a template on my computer.  I printed the template on some white cardstock.  I used my sponger and added some color to the cardstock and then adhered the honeycomb pieces to the template.

I added some different colored eyelets and a button to the card to finish it off.

This is such a wonderful design. Love the fussy cutting around the birdies.
