Firstly I have to apologize for the photography on this card. It was extremely difficult to get a photo of this card in it's true colours. The real thing actually looks much cleaner and brighter .... The photo has a bit of a yellowish hue and the inked edges are more prominent in the photo than in reality, which makes it look grubby to me.
This bird house card was inspired by the bird house Easter egg box I made some time back.
Cutting out the bird house was fun trying to get both sides the same angle.
Here's a list of the tools and materials used for this project
Stampin' up!s punches,
Boho the flower punch,
Word window punch,
1" circle punch
1 1/4" circle punch
scallop border punch.
Stampin' up inks.
Pretty in pink
The inks were used to daub the edges of the card
The birds wing was stamped using a stamp from the tiny tags set and Early Espresso ink.
The body of the house was stamped using the Hardwood background stamp and crumb cake ink.
The greeting was printed off from my PC and punched out with the word window punch.
One black shiny gemstone for the eye.
One crystal for the centre of the flower.
Foam pads to raise the birdhouse and sentiment.
Stampin' up s DSP paper and cardstock.
The tiny pink heart is the waste from a Martha Stewart s border punch.
