Two-step bird punch birthday card

One of my absolute favourite products in the new mini catalogue is the two-step bird punch. I adore birds and can't imagine being stumped for something lovely to do with this punch! I've made a very simple birthday card with it this time.


It's called a two-step punch because first step: you punch out three separate shapes - the bird, its wing and that beautiful branch (how useful will that be!) - and then, second step: you put the shapes together. This striped paper is from the new mini catalogue too; it comes in a 12x12" book of 12 gorgeous double-sided designs, all quite different - that's 48 different papers for £19.50! This paper is great quality and is only 40p a sheet!

Supplies: (All Stampin' Up unless specified)
Stamps: A Bit of Birthday Cheer, Frames With a Flourish
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Card stock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip
Other: Two-step Bird punch, designer Series Paper Stack, corner rounder, paper piercer (for bird's eye)

It's so exciting to be creating with these gorgeous new products.
This is a very good time to be hosting a Stampin' Up party!
Thanks for visiting.
