Love Birds

These "love bird" cards were created for my sister's Etsy shop (see bottom of post). With a hot cup of tea, a comfortable couch, and good movie on TV, the construction of these birds zoomed right along. Some people hate this kind of tedious work, but this is exactly the kind of work that makes me love making cards. Hope that you enjoy!

The wings are sewn directly to the birds and the birds are then adhered directly to the card base. The inside of the card is free of holes and thread of any kind.

Each card is constructed completely by hand from the cutting and scoring of the base to the design and creation of the birds.

Material: 122 lb. white surface cardstock (has a smooth, plastic-like texture), patterned paper, vellum, quilting thread, archival-safe permanent black pen.
Cards are sold individually and come with a coordinating patterned envelope handcrafted by me. I use remoistenable envelope glue that works exactly like the glue on envelopes that you can buy in stores.
Each card has been left blank inside and out, but can be customized with my sister's beautiful calligraphy to suit your needs. See Etsy posting for more details.
Size: Standard A2 card and envelope: Card measures 4 1/4" 5 1/2", envolope measures 4 3/8" x 5 3/4"

Because each card is made entirely by hand, there will be small variations even in cards of the same design. Cards are packaged and sealed in a cellophane bag and will ship from Memphis, TN. They are available for purchase here.

Thanks for stopping by!
