Punch Art – Birds


My Punch Classes did this card last month.  I saw the idea for the birds over on SCS, but changed up the card.  I wanted to feature how the Scallop Square Bigz Die could be used to make the base of the card.  Isn’t this a cute new baby card?

I started by folding a 4 3/4 x 11 piece of Apricot Appeal cardstock in half, then I placed it on the Scallop Square Bigz die just below one edge of the scallops so that side wouldn’t cut thru.  Voila…scallop card!  I wheeled the background of the Whisper White cardstock with Whimsy Jumbo Wheel in Apricot Appeal and layered it on Bashful Blue cardstock.  Then I used the Wide Oval and punched out a Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink oval from each color.  I trimmed off just a slice of the oval, then used it for my wing.  I added a beak from Apricot Appeal which is a 1/2 circle punch cut in half and adhered under the Wide Oval.  I drew some stick bird legs and the eye with a Chocolate Chip marker.  I stamped Hello Baby from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Chocolate Chip on Apricot Appeal and punched it with the Modern Label Punch.  I placed it along the side and trimmed off the excess.  Finally, I used my White Gel Pen and drew some circles in each of the scallops going around the card.

Fun card…pretty quick and easy to duplicate for those last minute baby cards you need!

Bunch of running to do today, meeting my upline for lunch (yeah!) and need to finish working on the Demo Round Up meeting for the Columbus area demos that is Sunday!  Need to prep my Make & Take, plus get some display things put together.  Can’t wait!
