One Layer Vintage Birdies

Welcome! I've gotta keep this quick--running out of time!!! I've got three vintage birdie Valentines to share with you! I'm submitting them into this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge--white base, only red and pink ink--, this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge--highs and lows/use scallops-- (all have scallops, but the bird cage on card three has a scalloped bottom as well), and into this week's Less is More challenge--one layer birds.

Card one & detail~


Card two & detail~


Card three & detail~


I used my scallop border punch to punch off the bottoms of the cards, then heat embossed my images and sentiments with clear embossing powder. How cute are these?! Thanks for taking a peek--come play with us, won't you? Happy stamping!

I am becoming more and more enamoured of the CAS style, and hope to master it eventually! Thank you for your kind comments on my card.

Mynnette, these are all sooooooo adorable! Love the crispness of the bright red against the white and the scallops add just the right touch of zing!
