Love Birds Greeting Cards
Love birds greeting cards with two lovebirds perched on a branch amongst pink cherry blossoms.
Oriental lovebirds or I Love You jazzy love bird with aged lace.
Making your own love birds cards are so much fun.
When I first look at the wood mounted stamp above, I wasn't too enthusiastic about this image. But when I started my love birds greeting cards project, I thought I would use it to make a non-cutesy kind of love card. And yet, retaining a bit of romance in the design. So here's the card I created.
