I made this card using the Leafy Birdhouse cling stamp by Serendipity Stamps.
I colored it with copics and I stamped twice so I could cut out the little bird and pop it up on foam tape.
The image is cut out with the Spellbinders Label 4 die. The matte behind it is the same size die, I just cut it in half so I could spread it out to matte the ends (you need to trim the center a little so the cut does not show). I learned this nifty trick from gbedwright over on Splitcoast and I really like it! (you can see her wonderful blog here).
The background is the Spellbinders butterfly Impressibility stencil . I inked the paper with Vintage photo distress ink and a duster brush before I removed the stencil.
The paper is from the Fall Frolic Prism Cardstock collection.
I used this week’s Card Positioning System sketch for the card layout.
I hope all the little birdies out there find a home – winter is coming.
