Happy BIRD-day!

Birthday Sundaes has a challenge this week to make an Easel Card with the birthday sentiment on the front. I made this cute little easel card.

And when opened:

and one more angle:

Finished Card: 3" x 3 1/2" ((to the top of the hat)

Cardstock: White, Blue, Dark Blue, Yellow/Gold, Purple, Brown, Tan, Pink and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge 3 Birds on Parade Bird 1, page 28 (Base, Shift, Layer 1 Base and Layer 1 Shift); Party, page 63 (Base (cut for the cupcake only), Layer 2 Base and Layer 2 Shift) and Nest, page 75 (Base and Shift)
Cricut Design Studio
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Make A Wish, "Happy BIRD-day!"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'Vine Swirls
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Candy Cane Stripes
Inkssentials Glossy Accents
Black Pigment Ink
Small Yellow Pom Pom
Mounting Tape

I made this easel card by cutting a strip of white card stock 3" x 9". I scored at 3", 4 1/2" and 6". Fold to make a "M" shape. Glue the one side of the middle of the "M" to the side...this forms the front of the card. This is the base of the easel card. I added the patterned paper to the inside and decorated. I decorated an extra piece of card stock and adhered it to the front of the card. I hope you understand what I did. If not, you can check out Andrea's Stampin' Moments (click here). (I just changed the measurements).

My husband had bought me the CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamp Set "Make a Wish" for Christmas and as soon as I saw the sentiment "Happy BIRD-day!" I knew I wanted to make a"birdie birthday" card. I like how it turned out. Do you?

Thanks for stopping by...leave a comment.
