Here’s the sketch:


The first thing was deciding on my focal point, which would be one of the beautiful birds, fussy cut from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. Next, I layered a floral print from the same DSP on a Petal Pink card base and topped that with Whisper White Cardstock, cut with a Rectangles Stitched Die. For added texture, the white layer was embossed with Layered Leaves.


The vertical rectangle was made with dotted Bird Ballad DSP, embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder, and given scalloped ends with a Be Mine Stitched Die.

My fussy cut bird is perched on a frame, made with two Stitched Rectangle Dies and Petal Pink Cardstock.

TIP: Place one die inside the other, and cut at the same time.


The sentiment, “fabulous at any age,” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set, which I cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.

TIP: Turn the die around for a second cut to make a shorter label.

Last, but not least, embellishment! I knotted a small piece of the beautiful, Petal Pink, Organdy Ribbon, attaching it with a Glue Dot. And, a Petal Pink, Frosted Flower draws your eye to the sentiment.
