A Little Birdie Told Me Birthday Card

When I saw this cute bird image from Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle I knew it would make a cute card.  Love the way it turned out.

This is a digital stamp so I printed it using my Brother Laser Printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (listed below).  Once the coloring was done I used my PIXScan Mat and cut around the image with the Silhouette Cameo.  I cut a rectangle from the same white cardstock and raided my scraps of colored cardstock to find the perfect blue that would compliment the bird and cut it 1/8″ larger than the stitched rectangle.  Both were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive. A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the rectangle was adhered to the font with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

I placed the bird image on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Avery Elle’s Tweet Tweet with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  I traced around the image on some Darice Sticky Back Foam and added to the back of the focal image for added dimension and was adhered to the matted rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  A little shine was added to the dots on the hat scarf and the center of the flowers with Star Dust Stickles and the card was done.
