Spring Songbirds!

I love these three little songbirds even though they are taking a backseat to the  new “Build A Blossom” flower.  I wanted to give the appearance of peeking out your window into your backyard garden with this card. Doesn’t it make you long for spring?

Vintage Build A Blossom

I created the flower by stamping each petal with Crumb Cake ink onto Pretty in Pink cardstock and punching each petal out with the new Blossoms Petal Punch.  The blossom turned out absolutely beautiful, especially after I sprayed each petal with Vanilla Smooch Spray to make them glisten.   To put the flower together after stamping all the petals, I stacked them on top of each other, punched a hole through the entire stack on the inside tip of the petals using a Crop-A-Dile.  To hold all the petals together I inserted an antique brad to the center and fanned all the petals out.  I then curled under the edges of the petals using my bone folder.  To separate and lift some parts of the petals I added some dimensionals.  I then attached the small butterfly from the “Clearly for You” stamp set and stamped Friend from “You’re A Gem” .   All three stamp sets I used on this card are available in the new Mini Occasions Catalog.
