Authentique Card Set

Hi there! It's Misty again with a card set that is NOT for the birds. I am loving the new Free Bird papers from Authentique Paper. They are PERFECT for card making. 

The Fair-Weather collection is one of my true favorites and I can't wait to get some more!!! Many of you who know me know that I have a personal goal to send joy through hand made cards I create (I was inspired by my dear friend Kristy) and I'm happy to tell you that I have now made and delivered over 80 cards to friends and, for me, this was the perfect assignment.

I wanted this set of cards to be uniform in some ways but still be individual. So I covered each card in a foundation paper from the Wonder collection. Next I used a small embossing folder to make an impression on the front of each card. Then I got to work creating.
I cut a one inch strip from each of the Fair-Weather papers and adhered it to the left hand side of the card and then rounded the corners.
Petite Type Circle Letters  from the Journey Collectoin

Here I added some words from the Blissful Diction set

Please stop by the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER BLOG today to see the details on the rest of the cards.
I hope you enjoyed this little collection of joy and maybe you can use some Free Bird papers of your own to send a little joy!  Have a great day!
