Cranes with Bamboo and Pine

Hello! Leah from Paper Blossoms here today and I have a card to share with you using some pretty bird images.


Crane with Bamboo, Crane with Pine card by Leah Cornelius

This image is called (A269) Crane with Bamboo Crane with Pine. I wanted to use the image individually so I cut them apart. I then die cut scallop circles out of white cardstock and stamped each image in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I colored the images with Copic markers. I layered black cardstock behind the crane images and layered patterned paper for my card base. A row of sequins gives just a bit of sparkle. I chose muted, earth colors for my cranes.


I like how they cranes are each facing a different direction. Even with smaller stamps you can create a pretty and balanced card. I hope you enjoyed today’s creation and thanks for stopping by!

    I really like the way you designed this Leah, and like the idea of using the images separately. Very pretty.
