Garden Birdhouses #GDP353 Hello Card

Card Measurements and Supply List for this project are found at the bottom of this blog post.

For this week’s Global Design Project color challenge I created a simple card using the gorgeous 2022-2023 Annual Catalog stamp set, Classic ink pads, and my blender pen.


I started with a Bermuda Bay card base. Cut a Blackberry Bliss cardstock panel and a Basic White cardstock panel. Stamp the images from the Garden Birdhouses in Memento Black ink on the Basic White cardstock panel. Color the images using a blender pen and the ink pads (creating an ink well in the lid) and adding Wink of Stella on the flowers & birds for sparkle. Glue the stamped & colored Basic White cardstock panel to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock panel.

Cut a Basic White cardstock sentiment panel and a Bermuda Bay cardstock sentiment panel layer. Stamp the sentiment and flowers from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Memento Black and color with blender pen & ink pads on the Basic White cardstock sentiment panel. Glue the stamped & colored sentiment panel to the Bermuda Bay cardstock sentiment panel layer and then glue to the bottom of the larger panels. Wrap the panels with Linen Thread and tie with a bow. Make another double Linen Thread bow and use glue dots to add it the other bow. Add Iridescent rhinestones to the sides of the sentiment panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the panel to the card base.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. I stamped the images from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set and colored them using my blender pen and ink cases on the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
