Birdie Birthday Card

Hi bloggers!  Both the Home Tweet Home and the A little Birdie told me die sets are perfect for making these clean and simple styled cards.  The two sets work great together to give you even more creative possibilities. 

The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, this card is a perfect greeting for someone who does not like fussy. The bird/birdhouse themed die sets can be used for many occasions. Off to watch the video. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Hi Sue. Hope you had a lovely day yesterday and maybe treated to your favourite pizza with a cold glass of wine to wash it down with ☺
I have to say I'm completely in love with this collection of dies you really know how to do cute, cute and beautiful. This sample would look stunning mounted inside a box frame as a New Home card too. It's one of my most favourite from your April launch and I'm looking forward to watching the tutorial later. Sending love and hugs to you xxx

So you're a June 4 baby? Well Happy Birthday! I hope you are celebrated all month, and then the rest of the year, and then until your next birthday.

This card is so sweet. Simple, domestic, avian-style bliss.

And now my bed is promising simple, domestic, homo sapien-style, nocturnal bliss.

All the best,

Good Morning Sue. Excuse the pun..... A very TWEET card today Sue. Lol. It's so lovely and cute. And I love the little nest. Ideal for the men as well...... using other colours I would think. Sending best wishes to everyone this very drab morning here in Leeds. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A gorgeous card, so cute. Great dies. Going to watch the video soon. We have a nest of blue tits in our bird box. They are so beautiful. Thought they may have fledged this morning, but it seems like we have them a little longer. One of them kept poking his tiny head through the hole yesterday it was so funny.

Love Helen xxx

DeCor said...

Echoing the sentiments of how cute today's card is. Looks so perfect with the cloud embossing folder.

Marie P. from Longridge said...

What a gorgeous card Sue. It reminds me so much of my 22 years in Canada when my dear Hubby made me a set of bird--houses just like this one and I loved to watch the little birdies leaving the nest.
You,my dear Sue, have captured it all on this card. Thank you so much for the video;

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card. The small touches of ink that you added really bring it all to life. I fell in love with these sets at launch and they *will* be building a nest in my craft room as soon as possible.


Lorraine Betteridge said...

Such a tweet card lol sorry couldn't resist love the clean look xx

Pawprintx4 said...

This is such a happy, sweet card. Who doesn't love birds and they are building nests and raising families everywhere this time of year. At my sister's we spend a lot of time on her deck just watching the feeder activity. My BIL builds blue bird houses and places all over the island.
I hope everyone has sunshine (we are due for a week of it!) and a happy day,

karenlotty said...

Very pretty I love CAS designs

Suzzette Yandle said...

You have designed a winsome birdie card today. Thanks for the great video. The use of the clouds on a background layer is an effective design element. One I need to remember to use.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Sorry late posting working nights last night had an early appointment I had to keep, I was late going to bed so only just got up! I know I'm repeating myself but you really have an excellent eye for details! Today's card is so cute I love the little nest in fact I love everything! I'm off to enjoy the video! Hope you had a fabulous day yesterday!

Hi Sue. What a really cute card today, great idea to use the cloud dies in the background in that way.

Well I don’t as a rule “do” cute, but this is so sweet & fresh looking that you can’t help but like it, especially as I like CAS cards. Love the colours as well. Thank you Sue.
