C.R.A.F.T.Challenge 2 - Moving parts.....Birdhouse

Time for challenge 2 over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - moving parts...

My DT card this week is for Heather that was 4 on Tuesday - Happy Birthday Heather.

A bird house with bird that twists round and dangly heart embellishments.

Made with beautiful papers that I have just discovered

by Crate papers - part of the Lillian Collection.

First I designed a basic birdhouse shape, along with some hearts and leaves and transferred them as a cutting file on my Pazzles.

I cut the Birdhouse in card and the Crate papers and paper pieced them adding a little ink.

Added the leaves around front opening of birdhouse, inked and doodled on.

Made up wire droppers with glass heart beads and paper hearts and also Quickcutz bird.

Set eyelets at top of birdhouse and either side of birdhouse roof. Attached bird in Centre of house with wire attached at top by tape and bottom through a hole in base of card.

Tied top of birdhouse with ribbon adding Crate paper Lillian Tag to ribbon.

Added wire droppers to either side of birdhouse roof.

Still folds flat to go in envelope ! x

This is the lovely stamp you could win from Pink Gem Designs
