Sweet Songbirds Something to Celebrate Card

Friends, today's card is the second in our series starring the spring-y Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set. If you missed yesterday's card, find it here.

Today's card combines the cute birds with florals and hearts:

The Country Floral Lane DSP used in this card is one of my fave papers from the soon-to-retire January-April Mini Catalogue. It was still in stock when I wrote this post, but order soon! It retires May 1st or whenever it sells out.

This lovely paper has so many beautiful patterns that suit a variety of occasions.

Here's how to make the card:

  1. Die cut the following, using Stylish Shapes Dies:
    • Mint Macaron circle using 2nd largest circle 
    • Basic White circle using 3rd largest circle
    • Basic White small chevron label
  2. Punch the following, using Country Bouquet Punch:
    • Large heart from Mossy Meadow Cardstock
    • 2 small hearts from Petal Pink Cardstock
    • 1 small heart from Mint Macaron Cardstock
  3. Stamp the following using Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set:
    • Songbird in Petal Pink onto Basic White Cardstock circle
    • Bird’s legs in Mossy Meadow onto Basic White Cardstock circle
    • Bird’s eyes in Mossy Meadow onto bird image
    • Sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink onto the label
  4. Adhere circles together using favourite adhesive. 
  5. Adhere a 3 3/4” x 5” panel of Country Floral Lane DSP to a 4” x 5 1/4” Basic White Cardstock panel.
  6. Wrap Fine Art Ribbon around panels and secure to back with Mini Glue Dots.™ Feed a small length of ribbon through the piece on the front of the panel, tie a knot, and trim.
  7. Attach circles, label, and hearts to panels using Mini Glue Dots™ and Stampin’ Dimensionals™.
  8. With Stampin’ Dimensionals™, add panels to 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” Mint Macaron Cardstock card base.
  9. Embellish with Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

The gold-metallic-threaded Fine Art Ribbon used in this card is a bargain, on the Clearance Rack right now for just $4.10. Here's a closer look - isn't it fabulous?
