song birds

Good morning. The weather is finally feeling like spring here and even God’s creatures seem to be celebrating. Do you hear the birds singing? We have a nest with eggs and I’m not sure what type of bird is living there as I haven’t seen them yet. Birds are in the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps April release too. It’s another great one!

I made two fun fold cards with this set. For the first one I cut off half of the card front and turned it, using it for the layered panel. Start with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of cardstock and score/fold at 5 1/2″. Then cut the card front at 2 3/4″. Turn the trimmed piece and layer it back on.

I stamped part of the image again, trimmed, and placed it on the inside. Part of the image was also stamped lightly in the corner with the words.

For my second card, I made a Double Triangle Fun Fold card with a belly band to close it following directions in this video. Don’t be intimidated by the triangles…they’re actually squares folded in half. It’s easy to put together!

No coloring on this one made it a snap to make several quickly and the navy color gives it an elegant feel.

I added the bird to the inside as well and stamped a sentiment from the Church Family set. My patterned paper was one-sided so the inside remained white.

Have a great day!
