Colorful Row of Birdhouses
Hello everyone, Annalisa here sharing my very first card as part of the Brand Ambassadors team! I decided to have a rainbow of birdhouses and birds on this cheerful slimline card.
To start, I cut a slimline card base (8.5 by 3.5 inches) using some 80 lb card stock. I then got out some white embossing paste and gave it a blue tint by mixing in some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Once the blue was thoroughly mixed into the paste, I applied it to the Circle Tone Mixed Media Stencil. I set this aside so that it could dry.
I die cut all of the birdhouse pieces as well as the bird elements from some white card stock using the Birdhouse Builder - Cutting Die Set from Brutus Monroe. I added color to the paper using a mixture of Distress Oxide Inks and Copic markers. Once all of the elements were colored, I assemble them using liquid glue. For the backing of each bird house I used the same die, but trimmed the edges a tiny bit so they wouldn't stick out when I glued the front piece to the back one.
I added foam tape to the back of the bird houses and stuck them down to the card base once it was dry. I used a die that I had in my stash for the scalloped border and added some foam tape to the back and stuck it down on top of the card base and bird houses.
