Happy Birthday! Elegant Birdhouse Style!

Today JustRite Stampers is unveiling a NEW set, Elegant Frames and I get to show you a A2 size card I made showcasing one of its images and sentiments! I've paired the sentiment and frame with an image from JustRite's Birdhouse set!
Elegant Frames is a CLING set featuring 11 stamps. The stamps are deeply etched red rubber mounted on static cling foam. They come to you on the back of storage panel shown above and makes storage in JustRite's mini binder box a snap! Stamp storage goodness!
The birdhouse image is found in JustRite's Birdhouses Set shown above! It's a JustRite original set that features 4 Designer Centers and 4 Borders that fits the 3 1/4" Round Stamper. My image is Copic colored then die cut using a round classic Spellbinders die.
For the card's gray panel, I went back to basic watermark stamping. This is one of the first types of stamping I tried many, many years ago! Watermark stamping creates the stamped image in a darker shade of the cardstock. For this creation I utilized the smallest stamp in the set and stamped it in a circle along the paper. I did not have to be precise making the task less fussy and FUN!
Designer paper used is Bayberry Cottage from PinkPaislee found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store. When die cutting the papers I cut the #2 die cut in half, trimmed it, then taped behind the wine die cut frame, adding a bit more interest. The bow is made with a gorgeous sheer ribbon found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store! The string on the button and the looped string hanging the birdhouse are recycled from the package the buttons were purchased on.
The following JustRite Designers have some stamping goodness to share today:
Kellie Fortin, Polished to Perfection
Angela Barkhouse, Snippets of Paper
Heidi Blankenship, Embellished Dreams
Sharon Harnist, Paper Fections
Barb Schram, Explore.Dream.Discover. (That's Me!)
