Happy Birthday Birdie

I'm really liking the raspberry fizz cardstock and find that it goes with almost every color! How on earth is that possible? I brought out my 'old' SU! Always bird...a classic! This is more of my scrappy style of a card that I typically do not do. It take a lot of steps and was difficult for me to tell you how to make because I did it last weekend! It's a lot of layering.

I've added a poll to the blog on the left. I just wanted to know whether anyone wanted to see more out of my blog. I was pondering a few ideas and wanted to see if they're even worth my efforts. So, if you get a chance, select one or more options to the poll OR you can even leave me a comment/email with any suggestions. I like to share my work and any information I find useful with each of you and want to make sure that it is effective!

A few weeks ago, my sister and I were 'models' for Mac, the photographer! Take a peek here and give him some love for those awesome shots!

Thanks for stopping by to see my birthday birdie. You have a great Tuesday!

Here is how you can make this birthday card:
  1. Trim blue cardstock to 4.25" x 8.5", then score at 4.25".
  2. Die cut circle and scallop circle.
  3. Dry emboss circle die cut.
  4. Stamp bird and cut out.
  5. Stamp sentiment and cut strip.
  6. Trim two strips of vanilla cardstock.
  7. Adhere circle die to scallop die.
  8. Adhere bird to circle die with dimensional.
  9. Tie ribbon around card base.
  10. Adhere scallop die to card base using dimensional.
  11. Adhere sentiment under ribbon and bird.
  12. Adhere two cardstock strips at the bottom of card base.
  13. Stick pin through ribbon knot.
  14. Adhere rhinestone to bird's eye.
