Birdhouse Scene - Before and After

"After" card

Sometimes it's fun for me to remake an older card, and this design was one of my favorites from 2012.  Bright and cheerful, with lots of detail and texture.  With the few changes I made, I like it all the more. 

The changes are: a smaller turquoise panel without ribbon, a tone-on-tone damask print instead of the embossed solid color, and a different sentiment.  See below for original card.

Card details for the "after" card (above):
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink lemon tart (yellow), aqua mist (light aqua), Hawaiian shores (medium turquoise), new leaf (green), pure poppy (red), scarlet jewel (burgundy), and damask print from PTI lemon tart pattern pack.
  • The bird, leaves, and birdhouse dies are from WPlus9 Folk Art Florals (retired). 
  • The sun is 1/4 of a 2" scalloped circle, embossed with two small Spellbinder circle dies to provide some texture.
  • The sky is embossed with Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.
  • The sentiment "sending sunshine" is computer-printed in teal ink with Milkshake and Courier fonts.
