If you like birds, you’ll LOVE the Birds & Branches Bundle! I have the bundle pictured in my Product List below, and I’m not even showing the stamp set and die set separately, because you really need both. Plus, the bundle gives you a 10% savings.

Today’s card is monochromatic, with the exception of the flowers.

Birds & Triangles




Cut Gray Granite Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your card base.

Creating the triangles is a bit tricky. Cut a piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper a “smidge” smaller than the card front, so, 1/16th” smaller than 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. Using your Paper Trimmer, line up the points with the track, and slice it from corner to corner.

Turn the paper, holding the halves together, line up the points, and make a second cut. It should look like this.

Glue the top and bottom triangles to the card front. Save the other two pieces for another card. Pretty cool, huh?

Stamp the two birds from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, and cut with the Birds & More Dies. Also, stamp the feet for the bottom bird, cut with the die, and glue to his backside.

Place two Dimensionals on each bird.


Use the Birds & More Die to cut the branch from Gray Granite Cardstock. Before gluing the branch to the card front, glue the top bird to that one leaf, then remove the Dimensional backings, and attach the branch and one bird. Then, you can attach the bottom bird.


The pretty flower is also from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set. Stamp three flowers in Rococo  Rose (I “stamped off” for a lighter shade) on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Birds & More Die. Attach with Dimensionals, and add Woven Threads Sequins to the centers.

The sentiment is from our other great bird set, Free As A Bird. Stamp “thank you” in Gray Granite Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.


My inspiration was Freshly Made Sketches.
