Charlie Bird

Well, I'm not much of a Valentine's fanatic, so I took a twist to this red and pink event and created a card that is more shabby and not as romantic as your typical Valentine's Card.

The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2"and it's has some of my all time favorite products.


  1. Cardstock aqua 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" 
  2. Score at 5 1/2"
  3. My Mind Eyes Lost & Found 6 x 6 Breeze Designer paper
  4. Kraft paper
  5. Want2Scrap Large Bird Flourish
  6. Want2Scrap Card Size Charlie Bird Cage
  7. Want2Scrap Pearl Adhesive
  8. Tim Holtz Bird Cage Die
  9. Wild Orchard Paper Roses
  10. Chipboard
  11. Glitter
  12. Acrylic Paint
  13. Seam Binding
  14. Distress Ink
  15. Sewing Machine
I cute the layers at about 1/4" from each other to fit perfectly over each layer.  I sewed the edge of My Mind Eye's Breeze Designer paper and distressed all the edges.

I painted the Want2Scrap with Ivory acrylic paint and distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Ink.  I then used the paper stack to decorate the Tim Holtz Bird Cage which I cut also in Chipboard.  Once I distress the Large Bird Flourish from Want2Scrap, I adhered glitter to give it a different texture.

Finally, I assembled the card.  This is what I got:

I added a final touch by throwing in some toule.  I hope you enjoy this card.  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think!
