I made a criss-cross Card and embellished the front with one of the layered chipboard birds a friend recently gave me. My mother-in-law loves birds so I foresee using the birds my friend gave me on several cards for her. I used a metallic pen for the faux stitching. This gives a bit of shimmer as do the two flouishes. The ribbon also has a bit of shimmer to it and the flower has touches of glitter. The scalloped panel pulls out and is where my husband wrote our birthday message to her.
