Guest Designer – Rebecca Yahrling

Today we have a lovely card designed my sweet friend, Rebecca Yahrling. (You can view her Flickr gallery here.) I love the way she “thought outside the box” when she created this awesome holiday card using birds/birdcages and snowflakes. She even used a non-traditional color scheme to make it even more fun!

Here’s what Rebecca says about putting this card together:

“Here it is December already! And I still need a few more Christmas cards to get done. So that’s where today’s card comes from. I started with a white card base and added a purple card stock. Then I die cut a bunch of snowflakes (Lawn Fawn) in a white card stock. Then I cut a piece of vellum and embossed (Ranger liquid platinum) the sentiment (CDD). I adhered the vellum to thesnowflake¬†panel by wrapping it around the sides & adhering with Tombow mono liquid glue on the back. I then adhered this to the purple card stock with the same glue. I die cut the bird cage (Spellbinders Flight 1) in Core’dinations silver mist cs as well as white card stock, gluing together for a bit more dimension, then adhered to the center of the card. I also hand cut a very thin strip of the silver card stock as a hanger for the cage. I die cut two birds (one from Spellbinders Flight 1 and one from Taylored Expressions Birds & Branch) in the same purple card stock and adhered to the cage.
We are all birdie lovers in my family, so someone will be happy to receive this card.”

    So happy to see my crafty friend, Becca, in the Guest spot today. Congratulations!! Your card is just so beautiful. I love the crisp and gorgeous color combo of purple, silver, and white. I definitely need to remember this clean look for winter cards. What a great design and creative composition with the birds enjoying the snow outside of their cage!! Fabulous work, Becca. Hugs!!!
