I have a pretty soft blue bird house scene card to share with you today using dies from Rubbernecker Stamps. I love playing in the Splitcoaststampers daily challenges and this card was made for this week’s Sketch Challenge. You can check out the sketch layout below. I love using the Nested Rectangle Scallop layer to create a background for my scene. I thought the Nested Tag shape added interest to the layout. I cut the Tree Panel apart and used one section for the tree. I cut smaller pieces to use as stems for the Flowers to border the Picket Fence and Grass. I placed a Bird House in my scene so I could use Birds for the three embellishments.
The Tree and Flowers
I cut the tree panel twice. I trimmed around the leaves that are attached in the frame so all the limbs and leaves can be used. I kept the left section of the panel whole to use as a small tree in the scene and colored the trunk and branches with a brown Copic marker. I cut apart the rest of the panel into smaller stems to use with the flowers. I formed the flowers with my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the tree branches and flower stems using glossy accents.
The Bird House, Fence and Grass
I cut the fence and bird house using Kraft cardstock. I cut the tiny roof in blue as an accent and attached it to the bird house using thin strips of mounting tape. I cut a small scrap piece of Kraft cardstock to cover the hole and attached it to the back of the bird house with mounting tape. I attached the post to the back of the bird house with a couple glue dots. I cut the grass and attached it to the fence using double stick tape.
Assembling the Bird House Scene Card
The large scalloped layer was attached to the card base using double stick tape. I popped the tag up on the scalloped layer with mounting tape and then attached the grass and fence directly to the tag with double stick tape. I applied a small piece of mounting tape to the right side of the grass layer to hold it in place since it was longer than the fence and tag.
I tucked the bird house in behind the fence and attached it with mounting tape. The flower stems were tucked in behind the grass section and attached with glossy accents. I finished the scene by attaching the birds to the bird house, a branch of the tree and to the right side of the card using tiny pieces of mounting tape.
I love how soft and pretty this bird house scene card is with the blue and white. The birds and flowers almost look like porcelain. I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day.
