Card of the Month - September 2010

The idea for this card is inspired by a Kaiser papercraft design.
Materials I used :-
A cream folded card + oddments of black and dark brown card, handmade paper in cream with brown fibers, coffee brown fabric with black writing, pearly cream beads & cream & black 3D writer pens.
I layered the middle section, started with the handmade paper, then black card and a strip of fabric, glued this to the base. The branches are narrow strips of brown, leaves are black, brown, faric and handmade paper, the bird shapes - main body is black, the wing/tail is brown, and the top of wing is handmade paper, all layered and glued on. Attached pearly cream beads on the branches with glue, I outlined the leaves and bird with black 3 D writing pen, used cream 3 D writing pen to outline the fabric strip and the birds eye. The frame was roughly cut from brown and glued on over the top, used the cream 3D writer pen around the inside edge. Finally added a few words on medium brown card "LAUGH as much as you breathe and LOVE as long as you LIVE, dotted the edges with black & cream 3D writer pens.
