Bit Box Cards 2

I have two 'bit boxes'. In one I keep all the die cut label shapes and mats that I've cut, but for one reason or another haven't used. In the other I keep all the bits that I've created when I've been playing.

Some months ago I was playing with memory glass and alcohol inks and created the centrpiece of this card. I stamped the bird in the heart, which if I remember rightly was a free stamp with Craft Stamper early last year, on the glass with Black Stazon. When that was dry I inked the back of the stamp with 2 different alcohol inks. I thought the resulting tile was really cute, so it was popped into the 'bit box' where it remained until today.

The base card is 5x5, smaller than I usually do, but the Marths Stewart corner and border punches fit exactly, if you are very careful! The backing paper is from the gorgeous Analee Prima 6x6 pad, which is lovely for femenine pretty cards. Little birdie was popped onto a Nestie mat from the other bit box with Diamond Glaze.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.
