Happy Birthday Loon

For this week's Anything Goes - Birds challenge at The Kraft Journal, I chose to feature my all-time favorite bird, the loon. I saw this Fancy Fold Corner Card Dawn Giffith's YouTube Channel. As with many new-to-me fancy folds, I wanted to give it a try. The card base was made with Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. After making the fancy corner fold and stamping it with various colors of distress ink, the Copic colored image was double matted and added to the card front. An Antique Silver Label Holder was added to the front and the sentiment was stamped on Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and glued inside.

The interior has Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock layered over striped patterned paper.

Cardstock: The Kraft Outlet (Buff Ivory Cover Weight, Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock)
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Hero Arts (Special Day), Stampendous (Birthday Wish), Gina K (Masculine Tags), Stampin' Up (Itty Bitty Backgrounds - retired), Whimsy - StampArt Designs by Kathryne (Resting Loon - retired)
Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black), Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Walnut Stain)
Copics: N0, 1, 3; B000; BG000, 01, 10; Colorless Blender
Tools/Embellishments: Antique Silver Label Holders (The Kraft Outlet), brads (The Paper Studio), Spellbinders dies (Classic Squares Large and Small)
