Hey crafty friends! This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook sharing a super adorable bird themed card featuring some dies and sentiment stamps from My Favorite Things!
To start my card, I cut apart my Birds of a Feather dies and organized them for the parts of the birds they cut out. That way if I had multiple of the same color I could cut the pieces at the same time. Also, these dies are small and it was hard to decipher so I wrote on a piece of paper attached to my magnet sheet so I could keep it straight in the future.
I laid everything out on my card front to see how it would fit. Making sure there was room for my sentiments and the design was balanced, then I switched to figuring out my background. At first I was going to blend distress oxides but I decided to play with patterned paper first. I found this awesome Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper in my stash and thought it was perfect!
Next, I assembled everything together. The background went on a card base and then I used the bird and birdhouse images as guides where to add my clouds before attaching those with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares. Finally I added the sentiment strips with foam strips and this card is all finished.
These dies have some really tiny pieces and I was daunted at first, but organizing the dies and taking my time made this card a ton of fun to create! I look forward to a whole rainbow of these birds next!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
