Stampin' Up! Convention 2012 Highlights
Baker's Twine Blog Hop

Happy Bird-Day!

I had such fun doing a production line recently of really simple, but I think effective birthday cards, and you guessed it by the title of this post - they have (ultra cute) birds on them!

Bird Day Cards (1)

This is a great way to use up scraps of strips of printed paper - we all have heaps of those leftovers, and its amazing how easy it is to just add a hint of colour or create a "feel" with even just a snippet of bright printed pattern.

Other leftovers can be punched out with the Two Step Bird Punch to create a fun, textured bird. And can you spot was the other off-cut I used up on this project?  Yes, about 12cm of leftover ivory lace.

It was too short to tie an actual bow, so I tied a tiny piece of Bakers Twine around the middle of the folded lace - perfect bow!

I had a bit of fun playing around with different backgrounds for these cards too. Did you notice on the first one, I scored groups of lines to add texture and break up the "white space" using my new Simply Scored? Loving that easy texture!

I left one card with a plain background, and I stamped the rest with the flourish stamp from Elements of Style stamp set.

These have got me thinking how easy it would be to change them to Christmas cards, by just changing the greeting stamp or by adding a piece of Wild Wasabi or Always Artichoke Designer Series Paper.

Well, if it's your bird-day in the next few weeks, and I know the date, you better look out for one of these in your mail-box!

Catch you soon! Kathryn.
