In the video at the bottom of this post, you’ll learn how to brayer the front of the Bird Ballad Laser-cut card and have a bonus card front to make a 2nd card!  Above you can see where I’ve brayered Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock ink onto the Laser-cut card then I have the Whisper White (above) piece or the Very Vanilla piece (below) to use on a 2nd card!

The Laser-cut card above was designed by Kurstan and I made it at a recent All Day Stampin’ Retreat.  I decided to tuck the extra piece of cardstock into the laser cut card so that I’d have an extra piece for another card.  The cards above feature the Beautiful Friendship stamp set (pg 123, #149251) and the same 3 colors of ink mentioned above.  Note how well the reversible Old Olive/Pretty Peacock ribbon goes with this palette!

I also tried this technique with “Patty Colors” … Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral and Terracotta Tile.  The Wild Rose flowers, colored with Pigment Sprinkles (see THIS POST) were added to these cards.

Use your Sponge Brayer to pick up ink and apply to the Laser-cut card.  With an extra piece of cardstock tucked inside the laser-cut card, you end up with an EXTRA card front to use on another project!

Bird Ballad Laser Cut Card with Stampin’ Blends

Have you discovered the amazingness of the Bird Ballad Laser cut cards?  They are stunning and so easy to use! I combined a stamped and colored image from the Free as a Bird stamp set with some Bird Ballad designer paper for this pretty card!

Hot Tip!

Punch out a circle of cardstock and adhere it to the inside of the laser cut card with Snail Adhesive, then add your focal point – in this case a die cut from the Wild Rose dies – to the front, then your adhesive is sandwiched between the 2 layers!  If you layer a colored piece of cardstock inside the folded card, the recipient will be able to enjoy the beauty of the laser-cut details when opening the card!

I stamped the birds on a branch image from the Free as a Bird set onto the stitched die cut from the Wild Rose dies, using Memento Black ink, then colored them with the Stampin’ Blends markers shown in the tip sheet download above, and also in the product photos at the bottom of this post.  I also fussy cut some flower images from the Bird Ballad designer paper to add to the card front.  Then I gave it a little bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones in the flower centers.
