BirdHouse Card

Happy Friday!
Let's take care of a little business first. I'm sorry I had no response from Beth Anne so the die goes to.....

Fun! Love the bright colors! I want to get the Pillow Box die too.... it's on my wish list!
PLEASE email your address and Ill get your prize out! The Tattered Floral die compliments of TIM! Thanks Tim!

Now for a spring time card featuring Artful Dwellings Bigz die, Keyholes Movers and Shapers die and the Bird Branch Bigz die. The paper collection I used the What's Up collection from Basic Grey. I love the colors in the paper. 

Cut background piece 4” x 5 1/4”. Adhere to your base card. Stamp message on a strip of card stock. Adhere the message strip to the card.

 Die cut Bird house from red pattern paper. Use the Mover and Shapers Key Hole at the same time to die cut the keyhole out of the bird house. Attach Metal Foil Sheet to another piece of card stock. Emboss and die cut the roof. Adhere the roof to the house. Punch a hole in the top of the roof for the twine to go through. Thread twine in the roof. Cut a piece of black pattern paper for behind the Keyhole. Pop dot the Birdhouse to the card.

 Die cut Bird Branch from brown card stock and Bird from turquoise pattern paper. Glue Branch to card. (Lay twine under branch.) Tie a bow around the branch with a bow.

Paint the Flowers and Leaves with Distress paint. (Broken China, Barn Door, Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint) Let dry. Adhere flower to the card.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a happy Easter!
