It's Your Bird-Day!
Here is a cute little spring birthday card I made today. It is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used a polka-dotted cardstock for the card base. I trimmed some pink plaid cardstock at 3"x5 1/4" and gave it a yellow mat that is 1/8" larger. I adhered it all down and added some white ribbon with some yellow pearls. The bird is cut from Create a Critter at 3." I flocked its stomach for some texture. The nest is also from Create a Critter, cut at 1." I embossed it with the Forest Branches folder. The branch is cut from Hoot 'n' Holler. I used my Gypsy to size it to how I wanted. I turned off the aspect ratio and cut it at 4" long by just over 2" tall. I think it came to 2.02," but I am not 100% sure. I inked all my pieces, the bird was inked with tea dye Distress Ink and the nest and branches were inked with vintage photo Distress Ink. I used a Peachy Keen stamp for the face and the sentiment is a stamp from My Pink Stamper. Both of those were stamped with walnut stain Distress Ink. I used pop-dots to adhere the bird for some dimension.
