Birdie Cards

I had to get my birdie set out and play with it again. It is really versatile and can serve for several different occasions. Today I needed a birthday card and a card for a friend that just told me she was getting married so here's what I came up with.

I used my Bali Breeze paper on the first card. I came up with a bright card which is unusual for me. Yes, I just lied. I love bright cards and that's what I seem to lean towards most of the time. I used my new Boho Flower punch to add some pizazz to the birdie panel. Then I stamped the birdie on a piece of the pink dotted designer paper and cut it out to paper piece it. I have paper pieced a lot lately. It's a whole lot easier than coloring in the image. I'm not crazy about watercoloring.
On the second card I used my new build-a-brads. I punched out a piece of designer cardstock from the Ginger Blossom to put on the brad and then put the plastic bubble that comes with them on top. The "it's your birthday" sentiment was punched out with the word window punch and then layered on a piece of ruby cardstock that was also punched with the word window punch. TFL!
