This card was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at JUST ADD INK.
As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to do a little peek-a-boo card - and that was my starting point!
I punched my circle from my card, and then thought, ... now what? I looked at my collection of Embossing folders and then my card design was done - some woodgrain immediately gave me the ideas to make this little cutie!! I stamped inside the circle with Hardwood and then punched my little bird with our lovely new corrugated cardstock. I love the wing made from a paper doily - isn't that so sweet!!
and then to embellish my little 'birdhouse', I stamped the tiny flower from Cottage Greetings and punched it with the Tree Builder punch - the shape it not totally exact, but it's pretty jolly close!! I was thrilled with the effect!
To make those little tiny flowers see fuller I then punched with the Itty Bitty flower punch and added some branches from the bird builder punch.
The greeting also comes from Cottage Greetings - and it's wrapped with some silver bakers twine around some Tip Top Taupe punched with the little banner punch!! LOTS of punches used on this card!!
