Bird House

Such a wonderful assortment of birdhouses on the Etsy board Stacy chose for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC685). After much browsing, I chose THIS. I really liked the text/writing on the bird house & the cute little yellow birds. 

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the birds, I set about constructing a birdhouse. Originally I made one that I wrote all over, but it just didn’t look right. Then I made one that I stamped a text all over, but it looked too busy. So I made a white one, added a little embossing & attached it over the text one so that just the edges showed. I added a die cut ground & grass (from left over acrylic paint bg) & put the greeting on a “sun” shape. I know the birdhouse is a little close to the ground, but I ran out of real estate on the card front, lol. 

Here’s a look at the inside. And below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I can’t keep staring at this card. It is so awesome. Love the text you had peaking along the edges. Your experiment worked out well. As always, you delight me with your design and sense of style. Awesome colouring.
