Birdy Birthday

June 9, 2022

Today’s card uses the Pretty Birds Bundle and also the Charming Sentiments Bundle which I used in my Facebook Live this week. I began by cutting a circle from a piece of Basic White card and also the front of a Pool Party card base using one of the Layering Circle Dies. I embossed the Basic White card using the Timber 3d Embossing Folder and attached it to the card front, matching up the circle die cut holes. I cut Pool Party card using the same circle die and them cut around the circle using a larger scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies.I attached the Pool Party scalloped frame around the die cut circle in the card front.

I stamped “wishing you the happiest of birthdays” from the Charming Sentiments stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Suede ink. I cut out the greeting using the co-ordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. I used a Blending Brush to add Pool Party ink to the die cut and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.

I cut Basic White card and scored it in half before attaching it to the inside of the Pool Party card base, making sure that the fold is on the right hand side. I cut a circle from Basic White card and a scalloped circle from Pool Party card using the Layering Circle Dies. I attached the die cuts together before attaching them to the front of the folded Basic White card.I stamped the outline of the bird image from the Pretty Birds stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped the branch image using Soft Suede ink and the bird fill image using Pool Party ink. I used the co-ordinating Birdhouse Die to cut out the image before attaching it to the centre of the Basic White circle using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting, also from the Charming Sentiments stamp set using Soft Suede ink. To decorate the inside panel I stamped the bird image using the same inks as before.

Both of these stamp sets and co-ordinating dies are truly lovely but I have to admit that I love the sentiment dies which fussy cut without me having to do it. I look forward to spending a little more time with these bundles working out fun ways to use them. I would love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
