I created this card for another rendition of card tag, and was given this card by Rhonda to lift. It inspired this shaped birdhouse card. I started by creating a cut file with the RoboMaster software to cut the various parts of the birdhouse. I first cut the base out of blue Bazzill card stock, and the top and bottom pieces from brown white core card stock. I ran these pieces through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss dots embossing folder, sanded the embossed dots and adhered them to the base with foam adhesive. I then cut the doors from Karen Nueburger Chesapeake vintage foil stripe. I added white trim to the top edge of the bird house. Then I cut a white label with the birthday sentiment printed in blue. I added two blue KaiserCraft pearls on either side of the sentiment, and added under the doors. Next I went online and found a bird image which I printed and cut out. I adhered the bird to the left door with foam adhesive. I then used the Martha Stewart twig punch to cut leaves from green card stock, which I adhered under the bird. I took a piece of 1/8" white satin ribbon and tied it in a bow and adhered it above the doors, and adhered a white Select Imports Rose. I tucked two of the same leaves I used under the bird around the flower.
