Peace, Birdie!



Today I would like to share a simple card using the "peace birdie" stamp from the gelly jr's collection. I actually altered the design a bit by cutting it apart and reassembling the pieces. You can sometimes get several looks from just one stamp.

To make this card, cut a 4x4 card base from light yellow cardstock. Freehand cut a waved line. Adhere light blue cardstock to the underside of the front. Trim the bottom in a similar waved line. Do this one more time with a darker blue cardstock.

To create the bird, I stamped it 3 times, cut out the body, then 2 wings. I reassembled the pieces with foam adhesive squares for some dimension. The sentiment is a rub on. I adhered one word at a time, making sure it followed the waved line. The remainder of the sentiment is on the inside. A few buttons were added for texture and interest.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Please share any projects you have created by altering your stamps.
Have a great weekend!
