Monica at the Dutch Dare Card Challenges generously provided us with this free cute birdhouse template(Thank You, Monica) for their Birdhouse Card challenge. I have also included Paper Play Challenges on this one for their Home challenge.
I used quite a few punches on this card and my paper crimper on the leaves. It added some deminsion to the striped paper. After I punched the 2 step bird punch I used the image that was left like a stensil and chalked the bird and wing on two different patterned papers, then punched it out again. I also got to use my large wood grain background stamp, for some reason that is such a kick to see that wood grain on your paper.
2 Challenges:
Supplies: Free template from Monica at Dutch Dare Card Challenges, Papers: Stampin Up-Creamy Caramel, Patterns Pack III, Stamps: Stampin Up-Woodgrain, CTMH-D1306Treasure Life, Ink: Stampin Up-Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Sakura Gelly Roll Pen-White, Punches: Stampin Up-1 1/4" circle punch, Heart to Heart punch, Full Heart punch, 2-Step Bird Punch, Pinking Hearts border punch, Stampin Up-Sizzlits-LittleLeaves, Fiskars crimper, Fiskars shape cutter template-Hearts-1. 

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
