First Take on AUTHENTIQUE'S Free Bird

When Authentique sent me their new series, Free Bird... I was in love! They are a set of 32 6x6 papers that are all sold individually. The really neat part, is that they are in groups of four mix-and-match patterns, with coordinating solids on the reverse. You can also purchase them in "Nests" or groups of patterns... But I kind of like the idea of mixing and matching as I see fit.

For this card, I chose to use the Familiar line. I have a thank you card for a fellow staff member, and I figured that he may like something that wasn't so girly.

I'm not usually one to gush, but I really liked these! I tried to mimic the pattern that was on the tan and aqua paper, by using my new Corner Chomper that I just got from ScrapbookSteals. It was pretty fun using the Chomper in three ways, the stub cut (sentiment), the deco cut (brown polka dot), and using both of them together (tan/aqua paper)!

I also used an American Crafts stamp, with Chalk Ink and some of the May Arts ribbon that I won last year!

If you are interested in getting some of your own Free Bird papers from Authentique... Ask your LSS! Or, you can order them from here.
