Beady-Eyed Birds


I'm ALMOST through with all my Valentine's Day cards! Yipee!!!! I had a lot to make this year. I may post a couple more but I'm ready to move on to something else now I think......

On this one I again used the Two Step Bird Punch from SU. I also used the Hearts embossing folder with my Cuddlebug and a MS Heart punch. The sentiment is from SU Well Scripted - such a pretty set of stamps. This was punched out with the Scallop Oval and Wide Oval. Paper used was Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Green Texture and Love You Much patterned paper. I "popped" up the birds wings a couple of times to make them stand out more. The layout is a SU sketch challenge from last week. I used rhinestones for the birds eyes and they look a little different - kinda beady-eyed.

Thanks for stopping by.................

What a perfect Valentine's Day card! I love the birds and I like the dimension the elevated wings give and the eyes are great :)

This came out so well. Very pretty use of the bird punches. The embossed background is a great idea with the theme.
