Sharing a tweat card today featuring the cute Build-A-Birdhouse Dies! I just love the different detailed pieces that you can use to make each birdhouse unique.
To begin this mini slimline card, I cut a piece of white cardstock 3” x 6” and lightly inked the very top with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I die-cut 3 panels with the Fluffy Clouds Border Dies and overlapped them on the 3” x 6” panel after inking each lightly with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The top panel measures 1 1/2″ x 3” and I adhered it approximately 1/2” down from the top edge. The middle cloud panel measures 1 1/2″ x 3” and the bottom panel measures 3” x 4”. I stamped the “tweatheart” sentiment from the Little Birdie Stamps on the middle cloud panel in Memento London Fog ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder before adhering it to the 3” x 6” panel.
Next, I cut a white card base 6 1/4” x 6 1/2″ (scored on the 6 1/2″ side at 3 1/4″ and folded in half) and adhered the 3” x 6” panel to the card front. I die-cut a fence from white cardstock using the Picket Fence Die, added some gray Copic details and adhered it 1” from the bottom edge of the 3” x 6” panel. I inked 2 pieces of white cardstock (1 1/4″ x 3” and 3/4″ x 3”) with Shabby Shutters Distress ink and die-cut the top edge of each with the grass border die from the Picket Fence Die. I adhered the 1 1/4” x 3” piece to the bottom edge of the 3” x 6” panel slightly overlapping the fence. Before I adhered the 3/4” x 3” grass piece, I needed to adhere a birdhouse and tulips. I die-cut the Build-a-Birdhouse elements from gray, yellow, pink and white cardstock and Copic colored the white house portions. I adhered a birdhouse to the left side of the card front. For the tulips, I stamped and Copic colored the tulip planter from the Garden Critters Stamps and die-cut it using the coordinating dies. I adhered it over the post of the birdhouse and then adhered the bottom grass piece so that only the tulips were peeking out. I then adhered the second birdhouse.
To finish, I stamped 2 adorable birds from the Little Birdie Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I added 3 little die-cut hearts from the Build-A-Birdhouse Dies. Finally, I die-cut the “hello” sentiment from the Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies from a light and dark yellow cardstock and overlapped them slightly to help it stand out a bit more.
I hope you enjoyed and are looking forward to Spring as much as I am!
