Coastal Cabana from the Stampin’ Up! Brights range is a favourite of mine. It’s such a beautiful cool blue that works well with many colours. For our Monochromatic Insta Hop this week, I’ve paired Coastal Cabana with Crumb Cake as my neutral.

The large birdhouse from the Country Birdhouse bundle fit well on a slimline card. The card base measures 20 cm x 20 cm, scored in half .

I die cut the pieces of the birdhouse from Cardstock and the centre from Country Woods DSP. The main part of the house was embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. Then I blended Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana ink over it for a coastal wood look.

The bird was coloured with Coastal Cabana and Early Espresso Watercolour Pencils. Around it I added some flowers which were die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock which had been painted with Coastal Cabana ink refill.

I was tossing up whether to leave the white matte layer blank and decided that it needed something a little softer to break it up. I added a panel of Country Lace Designer Series Paper at the bottom which added a subtle design and broke up the stark white background.

The centre border of White Cardstock was embossed with the Eyelet Embossing Folder and the ribbon added to the natural look I was going for with this card. This little addition just added the perfect touch to this card. The Tinsel Gems are just beautiful and on this card they look like water droplets sprinkling around the birdhouse.
