For the Birds

Hi Everybody!! Are you having as much fun as I am with this months release? Today is release day so everything that you have seen is available to purchase at the MTME Store. Today is a group post call For the birds. We are all making a Gift set of four cards.
 I have chose to use the template called Slip Cover. My lid is cut out using Wildflowers Paper. I decorated the front using Singing Silhouette Stamp set.


 Here is a view with the cover off. This template is so spacious. I fit in 4 envelopes and four cards and each card has a double bow on it. Lots of room :)

 For the card set I have used the same theme but used different colors and 2 different images. I took the big cage out of the Caged cut file, copied, paste and welded them together to create my card. The papers I have used all coordinate. Tea Parlor Acorn Squash Ganache, Tea Parlor Fortune Teller's Fallen Leaf, and Tea Parlor Nomad's Warm Apple Cider. Now the pretty cut file that I have stamped my images on come in 4 shapes, Oval is the one I have used. There is also Square, Circle and rectangle . They are so pretty..LOVE them!!!
 The New Stamp set called Keep Strong is designed to be inspirational for those going threw a difficult time. . There are a total of 11 sentiments. The ones I have chosen match my sentiments in the front of the card. 2 cards are for cheering you up, one is for a birthday and the last for a housewarming. The flourishes are from the stamp set Fanciful Flourishes.  And last I made matching envelopes using Singing Silhouette Stamp Set. That's it for me . Need more inspiration check out MTME Gallery . Hope you have fun with the Group Post today :).
