Today I’m sharing a simple framed birds and birdhouse card with a branch full of green leaves and a pretty blue sky background. I used the Rubbernecker Birdhouse Set paired with the Berries Branches, Spring Leaves, Small Birds and Leaf Group and framed the scene using the Nested Scallop with Holes.
The Frame and Card Base
- Cut the frame and A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
- Apply the blue sky to the card base using Tumbled Glass ink, a blender brush and cloud stencil.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
The Tree Branch
- Cut a set of Berries branches using Kraft cardstock and the leaves using green cardstock.
- Place the leaves face up on the molding pad and form them using the fine detail tool from the Paper Sculpting Kit.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the berry branches and heat set.
- Attach the leaves to the branches using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the tip of one branch, line it up over the end of the second and attach it to create one full branch.
- Apply rolled up glue dots to the back of several leaves and glossy accents to the end of the branch and attach it to the card base,
- Cut the birdhouse sections using Kraft and red cardstock.
- Apply Vintage Photo ink to the birdhouse and heat set the ink.
- Apply rolled up double stick tape to the back of the birdhouse roof and base and attach them to the birdhouse.
- Cut a section of the Leaf Group to use on the front of the birdhouse and attach it with glossy accents.
- Attach a small piece of string under the tree branch and behind where the birdhouse hangs with glue dots.
- Attach the birdhouse to the card base using a piece of mounting tape.
- Cut the birds using red cardstock.
- Color the beaks using a black marker.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of each birds.
- Attach two birds to the birdhouse, two to the tree branch and the rest flying around the birdhouse.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this simple birdhouse card. You can several birdhouse cards in my Birdhouse Category. I am especially fond of the Birdhouse Scene Card and How to Make a Shadowbox Birdhouse Greeting Card fit for the Birds. Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day staying safe and sound.
