Birdhouse Buds


To create the card base, take Cream cardstock of size 9 x 12 inches and score it in half to create a base of 9 x 6 inches in size. Using the designer papers from HCDP1-2150 Iris Garden Paper Collection, cut 2 pieces each of size 1/4th inch less than the card base. Adhere these to the inside and front panel along with White mat layers, to make a thin frame around the designer paper pieces. 

Cut a piece of Cream cardstock of size 6 x 5 inches, run it though leaf embossing folder and use the plain curve die from HCD3-7442 Curvy Decorative Border Die, to cut the sides of this piece. Using the decorative die from the same set, cut 4 pieces on White cardstock and adhere 2 each of them and add these pieces to either sides of the embossed panel. Trim off the excess from the sides and adhere this panel to the card front using dimensional tape as shown. 

Using the center decorative circle die from HCD1-7283 Courtyard Elegance Die, cut 2 pieces on White cardstock and adhere them together. Stamp the sentiment from HCPC-3844 For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set using Majestic Violet ink on White Cardstock. Cut this piece along with a mat layer with the designer paper and add this to the decorative circle diecut using dimensional tape. Again, adhere this element to the card front as shown using dimensional tape.
