Bird builder card

This was the third card we made at last week's workshop.  The A4 sheet of Wisteria Wonder card was trimmed down to just under 6" wide, then scored 5" from one side.  We marked a spot with a pencil about 2" from the bottom on each side then pushed the edge of the card all the way to the back of the Scalloped Tag topper punch and centred the pencil mark before punching.  On the back flap you need to score along the edge and fold it over.  The patterned paper is from the Afternoon Picnic DSP pack. The bird body was punched from a strip of Wisteria Wonder card and the wing from the same piece of DSP (other side).  The happy birthday sentiment is from the cupcake stamp set, punched with the word window punch and mounted on Wisteria Wonder card, punched out with the Modern label punch.  The leafy branch was punched from Pear Pizzazz card and the Labels Collection dies were used to make the Very Vanilla and Wisteria Wonder mats.  A panel of Very Vanilla card was adhered to the inside of the card and two small circles were punched out of Wisteria Wonder card with the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack and rounded with an embossing tool.  To finish off the card was tied with Pear Pizzazz taffeta ribbon and  a tiny pearl added for the bird's eye.
