Bird Branch

I love the simple elegance of these Bird on a Branch cards.   All the cards I have made with the Stampin' Up! Two Step Bird Extra-Large Punch have been limited to these 2 designs using Pretty in Pink and Old Olive, framed with Crumb Cake card stock.   Why is that I can't tear myself away from these colour combinations when it comes to this Punch?

The happy birthday greeting is from the Stampin' Up! Perfect Punches stamp set.   Each of the cards have been paper pierced to add that little extra detail and is easily achieved with the Stampin' Up! Mat Pack.  The Mat Pack contains a paper-piercing template and pad, so all you need to do is line up the holes in the template on the cardstock and pierce away with the Paper Piercing Tool to achieve a row or two of evenly spaced holes. 

The birds have been embossed using the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions Embossing Folder before being punch out and would like equally nice if the background card stock was embossed with the same.   


Thanks for visiting,
