July is such a treasure month for a great variety of birds to visit the backyards and feeders.  We have more birds this year than ever and so many fledglings it's surprising.  So for my first card for the month of July for FRED SHE SAID, I chose the hummingbird visiting the petunia.

I printed the images twice and did some fussy cutting around the hummingbirds and the petunias and then pop dotted everything to give it some height.  The edges of my spellbinder are distressed with charcoal ink for a bit of an added effect.   I also raised the entire die cut off the card for even more depth.

The entire layout comes completely colored for you, or you can use the bare images and color them yourself as well.  But using the precolored images makes it so easy; you can see how I created 4 colors all using 4 different color themes.
And that actually means you have no excuse not to make your own cards, right?  :)  Enjoy crafting; come on over to FRED SHE SAID and grab an image and try it.
Just click on WEE HUMMINGBIRDS above and take a look around the FRED SHE SAID store and enjoy making a few cards this summer.  Show off your love of color just as the birds show it off to you each day.
