Whimsical Bird Card Using Gelli Prints

Hi everyone, all month I've been sharing with you ideas for using your Gelli Arts® Gelli® Plate.  I'm having so much playing with my prints.  I've made a mini album, a few father's day projects, and today I'm going to share a cute whimsical card idea using those prints we had left over from the June class. 

They were all so colorful -  I just can't leave them hiding in a drawer!   So I decided to cut a few oblong circle shapes, add a few doodles and look at how adorable these cards turned out! 

Above is the front of the card, and below is the inside.  SO fun - and who wouldn't love to receive one of these. Best part - they are super thin and light weight so you can easily mail them! 

My card measurements are:  Top Folding A2    Folded  41/4 x 5 1/2 inches. 
The white liner  and inside card panel are  cut to  4 x 5 1/4 
The Birds are  3 3/4 x  5

Here is a video tutorial showing you how I created this card.
