Sweet Songbirds - Welcome

Friends, today's card is the 3rd in our series starring the spring-y Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set. If you missed the other cards, find them here and here.

Our card today is one for welcoming new friends:


In this card, we use not one, but TWO cute birds! Here's the stamp set so you can see the many options for the birds, their expressions, and more:


Here's how to make the card:

  1. Using Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set, stamp:
    • Sentiment in Mint Macaron Ink onto 1/2” tall scraps of Basic White Cardstock
    • 2 birds (1 larger and 1 smaller) in Mint Macaron Ink onto scraps of Basic White Cardstock
    • Eyes onto birds in Mossy Meadow Ink 
  2. Cut each edge of sentiment scraps at an angle. 
  3. With Songbird Builder Punch, cut out larger bird.
  4. With Country Bouquet Punch, cut out:
    • 1 small heart from Country Floral Lane DSP 
    • 2 small hearts from Balmy Blue Cardstock  
  5. Using Paper Snips scissors, cut out smaller bird.
  6. Using Tailor Made Tags Dies, cut the 2nd largest tag (either tag set will work) from Petal Pink Cardstock.
  7. With Gingham Embossing Folder, emboss 3 3/4” x 5” Basic White Cardstock panel.
  8. Cut a 2” square of Country Floral Lane DSP. Cut diagonally to make 2 triangles.
  9. Do the same with a 2 1/4” square of Balmy Blue Cardstock.
  10. Adhere DSP triangles to Balmy Blue Cardstock triangles.
  11. Add triangles to a 3 3/4” x 5” Basic White Cardstock panel.
  12. Adhere panel to a 4” x 5 1/4” Petal Pink Cardstock panel.
  13. Feed a small length of Fine Art Ribbon through tag, tie a knot, and trim.
  14. Layer onto panels the tag, sentiment pieces, birds, and hearts. 
  15. Add panels to a 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” Mint Macaron Cardstock card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals™.
  16. Embellish with Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

The Gingham Embossing Folder used in this card is deeply discounted to only $4.10 during the Last Chance Sale. It's a soon-to-retire item that I've used a lot, for its versatility in many different projects.
