Papertrey Ink Design Challenge

Pin It

For this week's Make It Monday challenge,
our friends over at Papertrey Ink asked its followers
to create a card using at least one Papertrey Ink product
and to incorporate the paper distressing technique.

This little sweetie is my entry into the challenge.

A bird house was created using Papertrey Ink's
Love Grows Here stamp set.
The house and roof were inked on coasters and then cut out. 
A little rick-rack was added for a fun trim. 
The house was then raised on the card stock
using pop-up dots.  The little birds and branch are from Papertrey Ink's
Little Bitty Birds stamp set.  Each were die cut from felt.

I really love this sentiment (also from Love Grows Here stamp set).
Isn't it so true?!  I think love also grows best in small houses!

Aqua-colored card stock was used for the background.
I sanded and scissor-distressed the edges and lightly sanded the foreground.

I think this little sweetie is headed to Operation Write Home
so that someone serving in the armed forces can write
a loved one a treasured note.  I don't think I can ever make enough
cards to honor our brave military.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
