Angry Birds

It’s my grandson’s 5th birthday next week but we are going to celebrate his special day on Saturday – it’s just too hard to get together during the week due to everyone’s schedules.

My grandson just loves Angry Birds so I wanted to make him a card with an Angry Bird on it.  I can’t take full credit for this card as I pretty much CASE’d this card I found by eliotstamps on Splitcoast Stamper.  I didn’t have all of the punches used on her card so I got a bit creative and repurposed quite a few of my dies.  I used Spellbinder circles for the eyes and body. I don’t have a window punch so I cut a strip of black paper and then used my largest circe scallop Spellbinder die to get the rounded edges for the eyebrowns.  I didn’t have a circle the right size for the eyeballs, I found a circle in one of Marianne Designs butterflies that was the perfect size.  The tail was cut using a Spellbinder flower die I cut in half and offset to get the fanning of the “feathers”.  I did freehand cut the beak.  I also freehand cut the hills, inked them with distress inks and layered them on a sky patterned paper.  The sentiment is computer generated and diecut using a long rectangle die from Spellbinder.  Can you tell I LOVE my dies – they can be used in so many different ways other than their original design.

I hope you get a kick out my card as much as I did making it!  Dee
