Birds in the Sewing Room

Happy Sunday to everyone.  We are enjoying Autumn sunshine here and hope that all is fine with you.

My card today uses the lovely topper sheet from Hunkydory called Birds in the Sewing Room.  I am entering this card into  the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #85 - Lots of Layers.

I am really interested in different types and styles of cards at present and used the tutorial I found at Anne's paper fun to make this envelope card.  It has lots of layers but is presented in a different and lovely way.

The base of the card is created from one sheet of 12' x 12' paper which is folder as per the instructions on the tutorial above.  Two pockets are created to hold decorated toppers.  The front of the card has been decorated with a mounted foiled topper, a Martha Stewart die cut layer, a layer of lace and lovely vintage seam binding ribbon and flowers from my stash and a foiled gold die cut.  The label reads Happy Birthday and is decorated with a key so this card could be used for a special birthday.  I have cut a key from shrink plastic and decorated with copper embossing powder and this embellishment has also been added to the card.

A closer view of decoration, flowers, lace, ribbon and die cuts on the front of the card.

A decorated label from the inside of the card used foiled mounted image and ribbon and die cut.  Also showing greeting label and mini shrink plastic key.  This has been created using a Tim Holz Altered Image Die.

Picture above shows the label from the second pocket, another fabulous Hunkydory foiled image with decoration.

 I have found a lot of tutorials recently on various shapes, varieties of cards so please keep looking and leave your comments to let me know what you think.

Sending warmest wishes to all.
