Bird Ballard Designer Paper

Both cards I use the designer paper Bird Ballard. So many variation in this paper, birds, flowers, elements so versatile. The only part that I stamp are the greeting and flock of birds. I color the birds in Pool Party and the other one in daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

About insert 

For the insert I share 2 ways. One is what I call the floating inset. The floating insert is only adhere in the center and that is the way that I prefer to do mine. This way it is super easy to recycle the card, just pull the insert gently and add a new one to reuse. Plus I love the way it fit. See picture below.
The second choice is to adhere all end. Both I have tips so it fit nicely and will not “pucker up” inside. All is explain in the video. See picture above. 
The full insert inside the card, add so much wow to the card when you open. If you wish to stamp the insert I recommend to do it before you adhere it inside. 
I received many cards with a full insert and they use a copy paper and yes it look great. Like many box card they have a full insert and the insert is way lighter. You choice is yours.  For these one I use the whisper white card stock.
