Bird On A Branch Card

This card measures 13cm x 13cm is is made using a ribbed effect kraft card.
Stampin Up Bird Punch Card
I thought I would try something a bit different, as I have never punched a shape out of a card blank before. I made the circle out using my 1 3/8” plain Stampin Up punch and then covered over it on the inside of the card with a blue Bazzill paper.
Stampin' Up Bird Punch
The bird was punched using my Stampin Up 2 Step Bird Punch (117191)  from  brown card and the wing from a remnant from the card blank. I’ve then added a blue flat back gem for the eye to finish the card.
Picture 725
This is a design I will use again and again, as my first attempt it is rather austere, but it wouldn’t take much to brighten it up by changing the colours of the cards and papers used and perhaps adding a flower or two.
