For this first card I used two K&Co Urban Rhapsody papers (Word Confetti and Sugar Rush) and covered the join with a piece of ribbon from the American Crafts Lucky Dip. I then cut a birdie from the Birds the Word paper and edged him in gold pen to make him stand out from the background before attaching him with foam pads. Finally I added the "hello!" greeting using some Color Rubz rub ons. They come in a wide range of colours (I used yellow/orange here) in an adorable tin and even better they're on special offer in the store right now!
For my second card I used a piece of card from the March Personal Shoppers Kit as my base. Because it has a white core I was able to sand it to distress the edges. I then created a border using more American Crafts ribbon and a couple of American Crafts brads (which are also on offer at the moment). I cut another birdie from the Birds the Word paper and used more of the Color Rubz rub ons on a couple of scraps of the same paper for the "hi" greeting. All of these were edged with gold pen before being attached with foam pads.
