To make the bird you punch the 1" square and round off all the corners. The tail and wing is the small heart punch. Cut a small triangle piece from Tangerine Tango for the beak. Layer the eye with one white circle and a small black circle punch. I sponged the edges with the crumb cake ink. The cloud is the top of the cupcake from the cupcake builder punch. The branch is inked using the Chocolate Chip marker and the leaves are the Always Artichoke marker. I stamped this onto Very Vanilla and then cut it out. The rest is very easy. Bashful Blue CS is embossed with the Lattice and then the bottom "grass" part is the Always Artichoke DSP. On my final version I added 3(three) little flowers to the branch. I punched those from the Itty Bitty Shapes set from Regal Rose and sponged the edges and used the White Gel Pen for the center of the flower. Layer everything together and you have a cute little birdie card that will make anyone smile!
Hope you enjoy this card! I think it turned out so cute! It makes me smile every time I look at it!
