  1. I’m leaving a second message – just love this gorgeous graphic look, and the genius you are – cutting that curved panel? Spectacular – so CASEing this one!

  2. What a funky, groovy graphic background, Therese … love the curve, love the vellum overlay, love the sentiment … adore that formerly blue little red bird!! Anita 🙂

  3. Therese, brilliant card, you really do make it look so easy. I can just picture me trying this technique and somehow ending up with a lean somewhere where it doesnt quite match up lol. Blue bird and red bird both looked cool. Cutting with the die cut and adding a vellum (acetate- I wonder if I was the only one to pick that up) layer is pure genius. Now I want to try this.

  4. Great card. I didn’t mind the blue bird 🙂
    Did you have a plan how you were going to stamp the colours/images before you started or go with how it was building/looking as you went? Hope that makes sense!

    1. I definitely did have a plan how I would build the layered die cuts. I wanted to colour the bears directly onto the panel and thought about colouring the sky blue… but really preferred the blue cardstock look on the background so thought it would be easier to do them separately and glue them direct to the panel instead. I’m not sure this makes any sense, but it was a fun panel to make for sure! Hugs x

      1. Oops, should have looked a little closer Vicki… no, there was very little plan when I created this card for TAWS other than using a group of colours to create my own background (which were inspired by Pinterest). It took me ages to put this card together probably for that very reason, it was still fun though. Sometimes I have a specific plan other times I just wing it, and usually when I create on camera it’s the first time and I just go with it (unless it’s really bad and disjointed… but that’s rare, because I think most people don’t mind watching the process and a few mistakes along the way because it’s what we do IRL. Hugs again x

  5. I like the colors and the way u did layering with addition of vellum, a unique touch to the design! I am happy that u ended with a red bird 😀

  6. Love how you placed all the geometric patterns and the color combo is fabulous! Another awesome card, Therese!

  7. I quite liked the blue bird, but I do like the red too. It is great to see someone else suffers from indecision! I love the added vellum – it creates another texture.
