Birdie Birthday




Here is a CAS card made to meet the weekly challenge over on the Less is More blog No.274 whose theme is to 'Use Designer Paper in a CAS Style'.

I have used a 5 x 7 inch white card base onto which I drew a fine black wavy line with a 0.05 micron pen.  This was to be the wire.




I then chose a Martha Stewart bird punch which has a set of outline stamps to go with it.  I first stamped in Versafine black ink onto papers chosen from Graphic 45 (Steampunk Spells 6 x 6 inch papers) which I then punched out.

The birdies were then adhered onto the 'wire' as shown and a dot of diamond Stickles glitter glue added over the eye of each one.





The Happy Birthday stamp is from Happy Little Stampers and again this was stamped directly onto the card in Versafine black ink to finish.

  3. Such a creative and effective approach to the challenge! I absolutely love the birds and the stickle dot eyes. I'm also really envious of your pad of Steampunk Spells which has been on my wishlist for a while!!
