Bird House


Love this Card.  This a a CASE from who is so creative.  I came upon her Blog about a month again and she just post some beautiful cards and projects.  I changed this card up some from her image, but not a lot so wanted to give her the credit.

Building your card:

  1. Base card is Stampin’ Up! Early Expresso  8 1/2 x 11 then score at 4 1/4
  2. Next layer is in Stampin’ UP! Whisper White  4 x 5 1/4.   I used Stampin’ UP! Embossing Folder Softly Falling and ran this through my Big Shot.  At the bottom, I added Stampin’ Up! 3/8″ Stitiched Satin Ribbon,   Wrap a 5″ piece around the back towards the bottom and use mono adhesive to attach.  Now attach to your BASE card of Early Expresso
  3. Assembling the Birdhouse:  Using the Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, I cut out one of the Birdhouses, then cut a piece of Early Expresso for pole ( 3/8 x 2), then punched out a base with  a retired Cupcake punch (you can use a square punch or just cut out freehand) and then ran that through the Big shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Assemble as I have using Stampin’ Up! demensionals to attach the Birdhouse and base.
  4. Punch out a bird from Stampin’ UP!s Tree builder punch and attach where you would like.
  5. Stamp Merriest Wishes from Stampin’ Up!s Stamp Set Christmas Magic and punch out using Stampin’ UP! Classic Label

Merriest Wishes MOJO462

Merriest Wishes

Non traditional colors for this Merry Card.   I purchased a New Stampin’ Up! Designer paper Stack so wanted to see how I could mix up the colors    Came out pretty cool.

I have incorporated the grids and Stars and like it.  Besides wanting to use this paper, MOJO Monday 462 had a design challenge so it was perfect timing for me.
