ID: MC Feb/13 - Jules BD - Bird Stamps card
size: 5"w x 7"h (closed)

My uncles BD is coming up soon and he loves stamps... So used the Spellbinders Postage Stamp die set and made it into an easel card which is my favorite card structure.

I'm using the Happy Birthday stamp from the "Let Them Eat Cupcakes" set from Quietfire Design - I love this stamp, use it a lot...

I die cut and embossed the 3 stamps using the largest stamps from the Spellbinder's Postage set. Then sponged a bit of Distress Tumbled Glass around the edges. Stamped the bird images while the die was still in place. Colored them with some Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. Wrote in the stamp value and other stamp words with a Micron pen. Stamps used: Pelican & Woodpecker - Old Island Rubber Stamps; Geese Onyx Xpressions Rubber stamps.

Adhered some scrap book paper to the floor and front of card, then adhered my postage stamps. Die cut two small stamps, wrote in my words on one, and adhered the lower half of one to the other then onto my card floor as a stopper.

Stamped my sentiment on some white cardstock and selectively die cut it with the same dies. Sponged some blue around the edges and adhered to card.
