Nature Walk Birthday

I found this robin in my UFO box.  He was actually stamped on the front of a one layer card that I wasn't happy with.


This Seize the Birthday sketch is for the guys this week and it seemed perfect for this guy.


It's still pretty simple, but using the bird as a smaller layer instead of the whole card front was a great fit.  I masked the bird and stamped the French Script (retired) in Sahara Sand.  Then I overstamped with some of the other images from the Nature Walk set.

I cut the card base a little narrower so I could cut out the tail and let it hang off the edge.  I hope his tail feathers don't get squished when he goes in an envelope.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Nature Walk, French Foliage (retired), Wow Flowers (retired)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, SU Markers (Peach Parfait, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand)
Paper:  Naturals White, Chocolate Chip
Other:  Blender Pen

I'm so glad you could stop by today.

Enjoy!

I just love this--and it reminds me that I haven't used this wee bird in a long time! So glad you didn't toss him in the trash and were able to redeem him into this beauty!

Bonnie, I love your card. It is nice to see some of the older/retired SU! stamps used as it gives me ideas.

Susan said...

Bonnie, I love this card - will have to keep it on file for ideas for using Nature Walk. What a great idea to re-use the bird from a card you weren't happy with!

Way to use that UFO box. You always tickle me talking about it because I think of Unidentified Flying Objects. Your card is gorgeous and I love the feather out of the box. It'll probably mail just fine. I mailed one once that I was sure the thin leg would be off of when the recipient got it, but it arrived just fine.

A pinner winner, Bonnie! I didn't even notice if you were entering this in any challenge, but it's definitely a winner and a keeper in my folder of faves!!
