A little bird told me ...

Summer certainly feels like it is well on the way today so I thought that I would share a Birthday card with a Summery garden theme running through it.

I wanted the card to have a 'paper cut' feel to it and so used the Rose Deco Frame Die from Tonic Studios to give me that 'cut paper' feel without having to get my craft knife out.

I used a cream square card for the base and trimmed a piece of Bazzill Moss Canvas Card to fit the front of the card leaving a small border around the edge of the card. I edged the card with a little Peanut ink and a sponge so that the card would have a vintage effect.

The Rose Die was used to cut the frame from cream card stock and stuck into place with a glue pen.

 I stamped the bird from the Tweeting for You stamp set from Woodware onto cream card and carefully trimmed out with scissors.  This was stuck into place on the card with foam tape.

I also used butterflies from the Butterfly Medley Stamp set (again from Woodware), trimmed and stuck into place with a 
tape runner.  The small flowers were also from the set and again stuck with a tape runner. Glitter domes were added to the middle of the flowers and used for the bodies of the butterflies.

I used the Celebration die from Spellbinders to cut 'happy birthday' from cream card stock.  I used the negative part of the die cut, matted this onto black/dark grey card and trimmed into a ribbon tag which was added with foam at the bottom of the card.  

Finally, I added a little more ink using the sponge to age areas such as the sentiment and let a little rub off onto the frame etc.


Hope you enjoy!
