Purely Punched Bird House
This little card was designed by my sister, Cindy Rigel and created by my guest artist Mary K. Hart.
The roof is was made with a 2 1/2" square, cut in half on the diagonal. The scallop trim border punch (# 118402, free Sale-a-bration item with $50 purchase) was used to make the scallop overhang of the roof.
The birdhouse is a 2 1/2" square. The 1 1/4" circle punch made the center opening.
The birds and branches were punched out with the Extra Large 2-step bird punch (117191). The bird's wing was layered with a darker wing underneath to create a shadow. The little berries were made with a 1/4" circle punch. The post is about 3/8" wide.
The beak was paper pieced and a marker was used to make the eye.
Colors used on this card were Real Rust, More Mustard, Garden Green, Ruby Red and Basic Black card stock. Assorted designer papers were used for the background and bird house.
Thanks for letting me share your work, Mary! Your card is beautiful!
