I have a soft and pretty die cut birds and flower branches card to share with you today using Rubbernecker 5128D Tree Panel #2 , 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5142-05D Birds and 5141D Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes.  I love how soft and pretty the flowers are on the branches.  I wanted my birds to match the purple flowers but was not sure if there are any species of purple birds.  I did a Google search for purple bird photos and came up with lots of examples.  So I decided to create a soft purple and cream bird that would blend into the branches. 

Coloring and cutting the branches

  • Cut the Tree Panel and trim the leaves off the frame border.
  • Color the branches using a walnut Copic marker.
  • Color the leaves using an olive Copic marker.

The frame

  • Cut the large and smaller scalloped layer.
  • Use a nested rectangle die to cut the frame opening out of the smaller scalloped layer.  Secure the nested rectangle in place on the scalloped layr and run through the die cutting machine.
  • Tip:  I use waxed paper or printer paper between my die and cardstock when cutting white or light colored paper.  This eliminates dirty marks from the dies being left on the cardstock.

Come see how I made my pretty die cut birds and flower branches card.

Forming and attaching the flowers

  • Cut the tiny flower buds and place them on the molding pad.
  • Push down on the center of the flowers using a tiny tipped stylus.
  • Apply glossy accents to the  back of the flowers and attach them to the branches.  I used a triple pattern in most places to fill in the branch but also added a few single flower in spots.

Attaching the frame and branch

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the large scalloped layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back top right corner of the frame and attach the branch.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the frame and attach the frame and branch to the card base.

Coloring and attaching the birds

  • Color the top portion of the bird using Dusty Concord ink and a mini applicator.
  • Color the bottom portion of the bird using Antique Linen and a mini applicator.
  • Place the birds face down on the molding pad and gently push down using a large round stylus to round the bird body.
  • Attach small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the branches.

 

Come see how I made my lovely die cut birds and flower branches card.

I think the flowers and birds look so pretty against the all white background.  I hope you are inspired to create your own project using die cut birds and flower branches.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.
