Freshly Made #53

Yep, I’m playing with Freshly Made this week:)  I have a pretty simple card this week, but I think it’s so cute!  Here is the sketch from Freshly Made #53:

Here is the card I made, you can click on it to make it larger:

How cute is that?  I copied it. LOL  Yes, it’s in the Stampin’ Success magazine, for all you demonstrators, on page 15.  I was looking through my magazine and thought, wow, if you turn the sketch sideways, that’s a perfect fit!  Well, almost;)  I changed mine up a little.  I wanted all green paper, so when I added my Cardinal, it would really stand out:)

I sized my card at 5 1/2 square, my strips are 1/2 inch.  Yes, I know they aren’t  all spaced perfectly, I did that on purpose.  Looks more “country” to me.  Once I decided on my papers, it was really pretty easy.

For my papers I used some “Be of Good Cheer” and some “Jolly Holiday”.  Jolly Holiday is retired but still available to buy from the My Digital Studio.  You don’t have to have MDS to use it.  It works with lots of other print programs:)  You insert it into your print program and print it just like regular paper:)

I will list the rest of my supplies below.  Don’t be afraid to ask if you have questions:)

Thanks for stopping by today to have a look:)  Have a great week!
