Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am so excited to share another card created with Build-A-Birdhouse Dies. I thought it would be fun this time to use a circle slider die so that the birds can fly around their homes. There are many fabulous circle slider dies out in the market. The one that I used is a generic one listed below. There are essentially three pieces that are required for the circle : circle slider track (A), circle used as a slide backer (B), slider disc (C).
To start, I ink blended two (one will be the front panel and the other will be the back) A2 white card stock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide using a cloud stencil that I created with Fluffy Clouds Border Dies. I splattered both with blue watercolor paint. Once dried, I die cut the front panel with the circle slider track (A). I die cut the slide backer out of white cardstock (B). I attached the slider disc (C) onto the slide backer (B) using a glue gun. I put the slider disc inside front panel with the circle track. (A). I attached the front panel onto the back panel with foam tape.
Next, I die cut the birdhouses from Build-A-Birdhouse Dies and branches from Out On A Limb Dies. I ink blended the birdhouses with Scattered Straw, Wilted Violet, and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides. I ink blended the branches with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Oxides and the coordinating leaves with Shabby Shutters and Bundled Sage Distress Oxides. I thought it would be pretty to add some flowers so I used the flower die from Window Quad Square Dies and ink blended the flowers with the same inks
I stamped and die cut the cute birds from Little Birdie Stamps and colored the birds with Copic Markers listed in my blog link below. I die cut an extra die cut for each of the two birds that I wanted to attach onto the slider discs for extra support. I glued the birds onto the slider discs with a hot glue gun.
I attached the birdhouses onto the branches with some yellow bakers twine.
I finished off the card with a reverse scalloped frame and a sentiment from A Bird’s Life Stamps. Thank you so much for joining me! Have a wonderful day!

I love this card! I love the colors and that circle slider…. Superb! Where did you get the circle slider? I don’t see it referenced or listed — which company is it from?

Thanks so much Lori! I had difficulty photographing this one- trying to get the lighting right for the pastel colors was challenging… The circle slider is listed at the bottom of the post under “Other Supplies.” The circle slider is from Michael’s. It’s their own brand “Recollections.”
