Graphic45 Birdsong - Jasmine Dream

This was from the Jasmine Dream sheet in the Birdsong collection and the image of the lady was the larger image in the middle section of the paper.

I made two of these since I had the image from the sheets where I made other cards and since they are both exactly alike I am only posting one picture. I did hate that I couldn't use more of the image because it was gorgeous but there is only so much room on a card available. I am hoping to remember to go back and make some larger cards with the Birdsong paper when I get my large envelopes from Linda. She was ordering envelopes for her Cards For Soliders and there were some A9 envelopes for $5 so I had her order me a box *okie still wonders what she is going to do with 1,000 A9 envelopes*

The card was fast to put together since I had most of the papers already left over from other cards. I did like the pearls added in the bottom right hand corner of the large image and I am always amazed at how little touches such as this can nicely finish up a project.

Since there were quite a few of the bird images I decide to layer them up and use one as a base and then cut the red from another and pop dot it on the base. I have no idea why I am so addicted to dimension on projects but my addiction is causing my mounting foam supply to diminish *okie is always on the lookout for good deals on mounting foam*.


  1. Beautiful card! I am always on the lookout for deals on mounting foam, too. Why does that stuff have to be so expensive???? It's a silly piece of sticky foam, for pete's sake!!

  2. I buy foam sheets and put them thru my xyron. Can use any color necessary and I can use a manual hole punch for small circles. Can also be cut in squares, which I do most often.

  3. Ohhhhh, I love this card too. Such a big beautiful image. I can't wait to see what you will make when you do an even larger card (A9). You know me, those are my favorite to work with because you have so many more decorating opportunities. Plus these old eyes of mine like working with larger bits and pieces and I have the added bonus of being able to make larger/longer verse sentiments for the inside of my card and run them through my computer to print (before I decorate the front of course). Lovely work Shirley.
