Golden Love Birds

Another Crafter's Companion card today, I promise there are not many left now, I'm just trying to post something that is not Christmas!

This one uses another of the Die’sire Fancy Card Blanks, this is a Centre Fold Back Card, I like this design, I certainly wouldn't bother to make one - the card blanks make it really easy.  The die is the Die-sire Create-a-Card Love Birds, I cut it out of the Kraft card blank and gold cardstock.

I inked the inside of my Embossalicious Elegant Orchid 8 x 8” Embossing Folder and embossed some Kraft card stock to create the background.

I created the flower using the Die’sire Classiques Delicate Flower die and the tags using the Die’sire Mixed Media Gift Tags die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Animal Friends Challenge 44 - Special Fold Card
Card Mania Challenge 86 - Tag, you're it!
Mod Squad Challenge - Go for the Gold
Morgan's Art World Challenge 22 - Embossing Wet or Dry

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

I didn't know you could get card blanks like this, will have to see if can get them here in my budget price, interested in your use of the orchid folder too as been looking at that too.
