To start, I trimmed 9 strips of paper 0.5”H x 4.5” W out of white cardstock. I used one of the scalloped edge border dies in the Ribbon and Lace Border Dies and die cut the 9 strips. I evenly spaced the scalloped edge borders onto a piece of white cardstock 4.5”W x 5 ¾” H and adhered the borders.
I die cut the birds and bird houses from Build-A-Birdhouse and ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Tea Dye, Scattered Straw, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxides.
I die cut some branches and leaves with Out On A Limb Dies and ink blended with Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, and Gathered Twigs (branches), and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn (leaves).
I adhered all the images onto the card and hung the birdhouses onto the branches with black twine. I added a reversed scallop frame onto the card. I had a piece of white cardstock which was left over from a die cut using Frilly Frames Hexagon and thought it would make a pretty frame.
I finished off the card by adding “hello” from Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies, ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
