A Little Birdie Told Me Your Good News!

February 10, 2024 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Saturday!

Sharing a sweet card today that’s perfect for an expectant mom/baby shower featuring the super cute Love Birds Stamps and Tree Branch Die! I just love these adorable birds and they can be used on cards for any occasion.

 

 

I started this A2 card by inking a pink cloud background on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2” piece of white cardstock. I die-cut 3 pieces of white cardstock using the Fluffy Clouds Border Dies and used them as a stencil with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I wanted a soft background of cherry blossoms in the distance so I die-cut vellum several times using the Tree Branch Die and a flower from the Spring Garden Dies. I then lightly inked the vellum branches with Antique Linen Distress ink and the flowers with Saltwater Taffy Distress ink.

Before adhering the vellum pieces, I stamped a sentiment from the Little Birdie Stamps in brown ink. I lightly dabbed Tombow Mono liquid adhesive on the back of the vellum pieces so the adhesive wouldn’t show through and trimmed any excess from the edges of the cardstock.

Next, I die-cut 2 branches and flowers from white cardstock and inked them with Frayed Burlap Distress ink and Saltwater Taffy Distress ink. I also added a little shading with Copics and white gel pen details on the flowers. I stamped all images on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock in a brown ink, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I adhered the branches, flowers and images to the card front using foam dimensional tape and trimmed the excess branches from the edges.

 

I used the following stamps and dies:

Love Birds Stamps/Dies

Little Birdie Stamps/Dies (bow, nest)

Clucky Chickens Stamps/Dies (egg)

 

To finish, I stamped a sentiment for the inside of the card from the Inside Greetings Congrats Stamps and a baby bird from the Clucky Chickens Stamps on white cardstock and colored the baby with Copics. I then die-cut around the sentiment using a label die from the Sliding Window Dies.

 

I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
