For my card I chose the Warbler 2 stamp and colored this beautiful little guy true to life, bright yellow all over! This is a male yellow warbler and has a few brown streaks on his belly, the females have very faint brown streaks! Yellow warblers are so cute & are often mistaken for 'wild canaries'. They make a beautiful fast chipping call/song that sounds like "sweet-sweet-sweet summer sweet". You could say I'm a bird lover/watcher, and I really enjoy photographing them. You'll find lots of bird digi stamps at Tiffany Doodles with tons more on the way! The sentiment for my card was inspired by my trip to Bath & Body works this past weekend, they are having a "hello yellow" sale! When you walk into the store instead of saying "hello" they say "yellow". Cute.
Here are a few details about my card. I created a 3.75" square document in Photoshop b/c I planned to use my Nestabilities Die Cut (standard large circle set) to cut out a circle around the sentiment. (I used the 3.75" die cut). In photoshop, I drew a circle path and typed my sentiment along the path. Then drew another path and typed a long line of dots around that path. Next, I brought in my digi and pasted it in the middle and resized to fit. You'll notice a small touch of his tail is sticking out over the edge. Before I die cut the circle shape I cut around the very edge of the tail and lifted it over the metal die cut so that the tail wouldn't cut off.
