Good morning, Vic popping in today with a fun critter card.

Using a piece of New Turquoise Card 250gsm I created a card base. I then used another piece of New Turquoise Card 250gsm for my card panel which I adhered onto my card base. I then die cut some leaves using different green colours.

I then used the above colours of card to make my birds. I wanted the birds to be bright and colourful. Once my birds were made I then added my leaves to the centre of the card and adhered them down using some foam tape. I then added my birds to the card.

Next I used a piece of Kraft Materica Card 250gsm and hot foiled my sentiment onto this piece of card. I trimmed the sentiment down and -laved this onto my card using foam tape.

Your card is now complete. The die cutting will take up some time but I think it’s worth it as the birds look really cute, if you have time it’s always worth making a couple extra just so you have them ready for if you need any die cuts.
