Little Birdhouse Card – Mark 2

This card measure 5ins x 5ins and uses a hand cut, white linen effect card blank.
Liuttle Bird and Bird House Birthday CardFollowing on from yesterday, I decided to see how the birdhouse card would look on a simple mat and layered background, using paper from my Craftwork Cards Country Charm mini paper pad, a white linen effect card and silver mirror card.

The wooden birdhouse tags came from The Works (current stock) they would married up with some little wooden bird embellishment.

Again, I put a scrap of red, spotty paper behind the heart to give the birdhouse a bit of colour, picking red from the background paper. 
Little Bird and Bird House CardI used a brown pen to colour the eaves of the birdhouse, stuck on the bird (giving him an eye), and then added 3 layered, punched flowers with yellow flat back gem centres, before finally doing some faux stitching with a fine, black liner pen. Sorted.

I think this little birdhouse looks perfect! Love it against the patterned paper and decorated with the bird and flowers.
