Aviary-Note cards & folder

I had a request for some ideas using this stamp set. Apart from the obvious nursery designs,  I thought it would be great for note cards.

For the folder I used smoky slate card. The birdcages are stamped in slate ink, with the stand in soft suede. The fronds are from Papaya collage stamped in old olive. The folder was cut 21 x 20 cm. scored at 10.2 & 10.7 on the longer side, and 6 & 6.5 on the other side. Holes were punched and eyelets set for the ribbon closure. The folder was then folded up and the sections secured on the edges with dimensionals.

I inserted 4 note cards & envelopes.
The cards were stamped with various images from Aviary, Thoughts & prayers and Papaya collage stamp sets. The hello, is part of a sentiment from Six sided sampler set.
Colours used are Olive, Slate, suede and Crushed curry with the birds in plum and curry, coloured with markers. Olive ink was dabbed over the leafy images using a sponge.
I hope you also find some inspiration from this.
Thank you for visiting.
Until next time- Keep happy crafting
