Card with birdhouse

Handmade greeting card with birdhouse.

Today I’m celebrating the release of the MFT February Card Kit with a card featuring the sweet birdhouse from the Home Tweet Home Die-namics.

I started by cutting a panel with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics out of piece of patterned paper from the Happy Patterns Paper Pad.

Next, I die cut the birdhouse out of Smooth White and Caribbean Sea card stock. I also cut the little ring from the Birds of a Feather Die-namics out of Gold Shine Card Stock although the Home Tweet Home Die-namics also includes a similar one.

After assembling the little birdhouse I cut the pieces for the bird out of Smooth White, Candied Yam, Cotton Candy and Black Licorice card stock. I colored the parts of its body with different shades of brown and adhered them in such a way that it looked like it was flying.

Finally, I cut the Beautiful Branch Die-namics out of Cotton Candy, Princess Pink, Sour Apple and Vintage Timber. Before I adhered everything to the panel, I stamped the little sentiment from the Tweet Greetings set with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

It was such a fun card to create! I hope you enjoyed it too. Head on to the MFT Youtube Channel or MFT Blog for more inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!
