Springtime Bird Card

I love spring and the first few cards of the season are so refreshing and light! It's good to break out the pastel colors again! This one is based on a card I liked on Stampin' Connections made by Michelle VanWiggeren. This is such a soft feeling card.

Cardstock: Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Sending Love DSP
Accesories: XL 2-Step Bird Punch, Trio Flower Punch, Scallop Trim Border (FREE with a $50 Sale-A-Bration purchase), Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Old Olive Satin Ribbon

The Chocolate Chip cardstock started out at 3-13/16" x 4-3/4". DSP is 3" x 4".


  1. Your card is gorgeous!!! Have been reading your blog for a while--so surprised to see my name there when your newest post came in -- and so glad to have inspired you. :)


  2. I love this card.... I've been trying to become creative (unsuccessfully) with the bird punch and I love how you've inked the bird's edges.... Just fantabulous!!!!!


  3. Becky love the card but I have to ask.....can/are you going to do a tutorial on how to do the border and corner punches....I was trying to do it yesterday and just gave up!

    I second that I have been stalking your blog and love the inspiration you give...

  4. This is such a pretty card. I just love everything about it.Mind you everything you make a beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Love what you did with the bird. What a great idea to put a wing behind to make him more 3-D. The sponging really adds to the look. I'll definitely be using this idea. Thanks.
