Floating Hummingbird

Hi there 🙂 It was my sister’s birthday a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to make a special card for her. In my family, we all love flowers and hummingbirds, so this beautiful set of images, one of my all time favorites, from Power Poppy was the perfect choice for this card. I printed off the frame from Hummingbird Paradise separately from the 2, mirror image, hummingbirds. I colored everything up with my Copics, then fussy cut the birds.

I wanted the effect of the hummingbird to be floating amongst the flowers, so I assembled the card with 2 fronts, one with the floral frame, and the very front one being a framed piece of acetate. I carefully glued the hummingbird images on opposite sides of the acetate, so when the card is opened, both sides are nicely colored, and the bird can “fly”.

I added a frame of pretty sparkly trim to the front for an extra bit of prettiness. For the inside, I clipped a couple of the flowers from the image, and added them to a sentiment, coloring them to match the front.

I was happy with how this turned out, and especially so when my sister received it, and also loved it!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
