Cards for my Canadian Exchange

A couple more cards from the kits from this class in March. You can see here that I placed my oval focal element horizontally on my label instead of vertically.  Does give the card a bit of a different feel.  I glued the decorative papers to the card fronts and watercoloured my images which were laser printed and die cut with oval Nestibilities.  The little marching birds are from Torico and the fun Happy Birthday greeting is from StampinFairy.   I layered the images onto slightly larger ovals from coordinating cardstock.  The labels (SX) were also die cut from coordinating cardstock and embossed with an appropriate themed embossing folder.  I punched holes in the ends and threaded in quarter inch ribbon adhering the ends on the back with double sided tape.  I tied a short piece to it to simulate a bow.  I glued the layers of my focal elements and adhered them over the ribbons using 3D foam tape.
The link to the StampinFairy blog no longer works.  To everything there is a season and it seems that this person has moved on!
