Birdhouses

Hey there Memory Box fans. Penny here today with a card that could be changed to use all year long. I went with a holiday theme, but change the colors and sentiment and it works for Spring, Summer, Birthday, Sympathy...all sorts of occasions.

Let's Make a Card:

 

Start with a White cardstock panel and stamp Skywriting along the top portion using light green ink. Mine came out a little too bright so I toned it down with gesso.

Cut a this panel with Curved Dashing. Take a large scrap of Red cardstock and cut another Curved Dashing, offset and adhere together.

Adhere a scrap of green cardstock below.

Die cut the Birdhouse Trio from White cardstock and color as desired. I used Copic markers, but paint or pencils will work also.

Adhere to card front as shown only using glue along the stems and foam adhesive for the birdhouses.

Don't forget to die cut the Resting Birds and add it to your card...so cute!

Stamp sentiment from the Delightful Ornament set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I then outlined some of the letters with a White gel pen.

Fluff the leaves and you are done!  :)

 

Happy holiday crafting,
