Bigz Element Bird Die, Sweet Shop DSP - Valentine Card

Isn't the new Stampin' Up! Bigz Elegant Bird Die adorable?  I used him for the primary element on this Valentine Card.  The paper used on the first card layer is one of the designs from the Sweet Shop Designer Series Specialty Paper, which dictated my color choices.


I cut out the bird using Pool Party Cardstock and covered it with the new White Waffle Paper to give it some texture.  Then I embellished one wing with the Adorning Accents Hearts Embossing FolderI embossed both wings with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Around the bird's neck I hung a Trinket Heart that contains a "Be Mine" sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Outlined Occasions Stamp Set (126016).  It is difficult to see as I inserted Crystal Effects, which sometimes distorts lettering.  Maybe the picture below will give you a better view.  And the next picture shows the added hearts onto the bird's tail features (did you notice that?). 


 The tiny hearts are from what remains as cutouts after using the Pinking Heart Border Punch.  I thought why waste them, so I added them here and there on the card.  If you enjoyed the card, please leave a comment.
