A little bird card set

I love sets, don't you?!! It can be anything and if it's in a set, I'm just automatically drawn to it. You may laugh at me, but a couple of weeks ago I was in Autozone with my husband! As soon as we walked in the door I noticed they had these oil pans filled with oil filters, big containers of oil and funnels all together in a set. I wanted so badly to buy one. My husband laughed and said he thought I was weird but it was just something about the whole package thingy that appealed to me.

What does that have to do with stamping you say? I guess that was my frame of mind today when I sat down to create.

I had made these cute little birdie cards for Jens sketch challenge from last week and this week and thought to myself, I should make a cute little box to hold them. Then I could give them away and afflict someone else with the set obsession.

First, is the card that I made for Jens challenge for last week. I had finished it, taken pictures and edited them, only to find out I had left out an element. Fiddlesticks!!! I couldn't post it like that, so I just set it aside and called it done. Then today it hit me! Just add a strip of ribbon and a word bubble over the word I had already stamped (that would now be under the ribbon) and it fit the challenge.




Second is the box that I made to put the cards in:

I already had a lot of the elements I used for this box, just sitting on my desk from other projects I had started and for some reason, didn't finish. Pretty nice when that happens.

Last and certainly not least, the whole set:

The box holds both cards and their envelopes and I'm thinking the person who ends up with it could use the box to hold cookies or candy or something like that.

The funny thing I found out when I finished this, is that my kids suffer from the same obsession as me. Both of them called dibs on it! I'm thinking I might be able to use this to my favor. Does that make me a bad mom? LOL

All set were made using Whimsical Birds from TPC and Tree Filled With Birds from Pink Cat Studio, Back To Basics DP,Chocolate and Confetti paper.

All images were colored with Copics.

The box finished size is 4 3/4 x 6 inches and has a velcro closure.

Have a great day! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
