You make my heart sing

Today i would like to show you one of my cards that have been published in the spring 2008 "Scrap Art Zine" issue. Not much stampin on this card but I belive thats what they were looking for. The theme was "Vintage". I used the Stampin up piercing tool to evenly mark the spots were the holes would have to go and used than the Crop-A-Dile to punch. Stampin up's white Taffetta ribbon was thread frist from right to left and than from left to right back and tied to a knot. The inside of my card is also decorated with more birds and a little tag "You make my heart sing" from Crafty Secrets "Bird Notes". (yes.. on the pic thats me :-) holding Lucas)

CS/DP: Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Taffeta Ribbon SU, Hodgepodge Hardware SU, Jumbo Eylet is 7 Gypsies (its cute cause it has a phrase pressed in)
Stamps: Sentiment and Carte Postale Stampin up
Tools: Crop-A-Dile, Making Memories Circle Cutter, various circle punches, Fiskars scalloped

Hallo Claudia,

wow und schon wieder wow, so wunderschön.
Ich danke Dir von Herzen für Deine lieben Kommentare, das baut mich sehr auf, daß dir meine Arbeiten gefallen.
Bei der Entenkarte habe ich einen Stempel vom Pattern Trio für den Hintergrund genommen und auf Karteikarte gestempelt, habe ich schon ewig nicht mehr gemacht.Ich mag Karteikarten eigentlich nicht so sehr.

Ganz liebe Grüße, Claudia
