Swirly Bird Kites

I spotted this idea on a newsletter from my way up the line, upline and loved it instantly, so had to give it a go.  I was glad I still had this pattern left in my Playful Palette Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack.

There are actually two different versions on the measurements as I had to figure them out myself.  I like the first one, but I like the measurements on the 2nd one better.

Stamps used are Swirly Bird and Greatest Greetings


Recipe for the first card (above)

Base - Sweet Sugarplum - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4"
DSP - 5 1/4" x 4"
Sweet Sugarplum - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Whisper White - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"


Recipe for 2nd Card:

Base - Peekaboo Peach - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4"
DSP - 5 1/4" x 4"
Peekaboo Peach - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White - 4 1/4" x 3"





A fun little card that can be used for just about any occasion and a great way to use some of the wild DSP that may not be your favorite as a whole piece.

Happy Thursday and thank you for looking in.  ~ Donna

  1. These are fun! I always thought of the sun when I saw the swirly thing the first time. The kites are a fun touch. I like the DP for the outer mat as it goes with the sun radiating more heat. Both are fun versions. You are right - you could use any sentiments for these. Thanks for a fun idea. Today, we had a old car show here called Tin Resurrection and I think I felt like I was under a broiling sun part of the time. Thank goodness we didn't have the humidity today. There was also a hot air balloon lift off too. So, you could do hot air balloons instead of kites if you had the stamp.

    1. Tin Resurrection! What a great name for a car show with old cars! I love it.

      My first thought with this Swirly set was the sun also! Great minds. :)

    1. Thank you Pam! You know, I didn't even realize there were kites in there until I looked closer and then I thought, OhMyGosh! I have to make those! :)
