Twofer Card Challenge #40 - Birds

Welcome to the July Twofer Card Challenge. As you may know, we want to see two different designs for two different occasions using the same stamps, stencils and/or dies.  This month's prompt is BIRDS. 

To inspire you I used die cuts named Creative Birds from Najlepši par. I have created a wedding card and a Christmas card.  

I'm entering both cards to the:

- NBUS #28 - Birds 

- Najlepši par: Galerija meseca julija (pravokotniki s šivi, valoviti pravokotniki, kreativni ptici, voščila na vrvici, akvarelno srce, božično zelenje 2, mini prazniki, jesen, kreativni krogi)

Let's take a closer look at the WEDDING CARD.

I took a piece of white paper and cut out the scalloped rectangle. Heart is a die cut shaded with the red distress oxyde. Bird groom has his suit cut out of black felt, the bride dress is out of white paper pulled over with transparent adhesive tape. Nest is shaded with brown distress ink. The Motif is centered in the middle of the rectangle. I added white sentiment (congratulation) and glued everything on the white basis. 

I'm entering this card to the:

- Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #409 - Any Ocasion 

- Bastel Traum: #102 Tiere\Animals  (#btchallenge102)

- Make my Monday: #152 Anything Airborn

- Papercraft Challenges: Challenge #71 - Wedding \ Hochzeit


Let's cool down a little with the CHRISTMAS CARD. :-)

I found the idea for this card by my friend Vladka at her blog Ustvarjalna skrinja. Basis for the card is one of my attempts with valleyo sprays. I always have a lot of paper pieces colored with different media in my stash. Just in case. :-) All other elements are die cuts from different papers. The bow is gold. 

I'm entering this card to:

- A Place To Start: JULY 2021 Challenge #7 - Craft Your Favourite Holliday\Cellebration (I prefer to create Christmas cards)

- Addicted to CAS: Challenge#201 - CHRISTMAS

Uau, kako posrečeni sta pa ti dve voščilnici. Navdušena! Super twofer!

Tina Z. pravi ...

Fantastična izvedba, sploh to modro ozadje. Sploh me impresionira, da sta obe CAS, pa tako različni. Vedno te je veselje pogledati.

Klara pravi ...

Joooj, kako sta čudoviti! Sploh poročna je top, čeprav mi je tudi ptiček s kapico strašno všeč in srčkan:)!

That wedding card is so precious with those sweet love birds. The Christmas card is so different and just lovely. Great cards, Sonja.

Oh, my gosh, Sonja, you have literally the BEST dies in the world from that company. These bird dies ... well, all of them you used ... create such amazing designs under your creative eye! I love them cuddling as a couple on the romantic wedding card and how you turned one into a SANTA BIRD is just TOO CUTE for words!! I adore it! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Sem čist navdušena nad idejo in izvedbo. Prav na obeh voščilnica ptice odlično opravijo svojo nalogo. Poročni par je zelo eleganten. Pozdravček in objem Andreja

Nataša pravi ...

Vau, navdušena sem nad obema. Sploh ozadje pri praznični mi je fantastično.

Vladuška pravi ...

Kako zelo lepi sta. Na poročni si tako lepo postavila ptici v objem sredi srca in razpela napis. Res krasna postavitev. Pri božični pa me zelo veseli, da sem ti bila v inspiracijo in ozadje je super.

Sonja, these have got to be the sweetest bird dies ever! They are adorable!! Love that wedding card, and those birds make a perfect pair of 'love birds,' too. He in his tuxedo, and she in her white gown. Very sweet! Your Christmas card is lovely and festive, too. I like how he's nested in pine boughs. Awesome cards!! Love 'em! Take good care. Bev
