Teal Bird Card

As I've given this card to Abi, my upline, for her birthday, it's safe to show it now! It was her 30th, but I chose not to put that on her card, I remember what I felt like when I hit 30 (that was a long time ago!)

The flowers were made using the new Small Heart Punch from the Mini Catalogue. You'll need to punch out 8 hearts from some Designer Series Paper for each flower & fold each one in half, 4 with one side showing & 4 with the other (hope you get my drift).

I placed a Mini Glue dot where I wanted each flower to be, I then stuck the first 4 hearts onto the glue dot(only the point will adhere). Then add another glue dot to the centre & place the remaining hearts ontop. I finished the flowers off with a flat backed pearl, or you could use a brad or small button.

Fabulous card Kathy. Love that colourway. It was so nice to see you on Saturday at Plymouth. Hope you negotiated the roundabout OK.

Thanks Marion, it was lovely to see you too.
The only way I mangaged to get round that awful roundabout was to follow Doreen. If I'd had a tow rope I'd have hitched it to her car just to make sure! lol
