Oh Baby!

As you may know, I love birds. So the idea of love birds and a nest egg popped into my head when I thought of a baby card. Here's my DEEsign:

Here are the DEEtails:

1. I created the baby card for the current Caardvarks challenge and wanted a gender neutral color palette. I love green and brown! I started off with some AC patterned paper in the Letterbox series and my Stampin' Up! Top Note die. It's a perfect backdrop for my love birds!

2. I punched the birds using my favorite tool - the bird punch in both Certainly Celery card stock for the body and some AC patterned paper for the wings.

3. I punched one more bird wing from the floral patterned paper and cut the tip of the wing to create an egg shape.

4. Then I used some ribbon from my stash to create a sort of nest. This was fairly easy to do.

5. Believe it or note, I hand cut the hearts because I didn't have the right size heart punch. I think they turned out pretty good.

Hope you like it!
