Hello Birdhouse Card

Hello everyone, today I want to share with you, a quick and simple card I have created.

 
 I just received the Fancy Birdhouse DN-1168 die and was very excited to use it. I wanted to do something different, rather than just cut out the die and use it in its original format. After cutting the die out with craft cardstock, I cut the birdhouse away from the branch. For a contrast of color I glued the birdhouses to a bright designer paper and trimmed around the die cut.




 
I decided I wanted the birdhouse to look as if they were hanging from branches. For this effect I used the Budding Branch DN-1037 and placed the birdhouses on the branches so they would appear to be hanging. To finish off the card I created some small bows out of twine and added some flowers.


Supplies
Buddy Branch DN-1037
