More Bird House Ideas + A2 Cards
Now, lets use some older bird stamps to create three more bird houses, two of them I made into A2 Cards!
After assembling another bird house, I decorated the front with the same wood grain panels, roof pieces and window frames.
These last two cards are super fun! I wanted to extend the use of the "A7 Pop up Bird House" die set, by making A2 cards too! I love when you can maximize the use of a die set. I know that our pop up dies are an investment, so it's important for me to find different ways to use them!
To create the A2 version, all I did was cut off the top piece of the bird house base with my scissors. That's pretty much it! Otherwise, you assemble the card the exact same way.
Instead of cutting the window that's included in the "A7 Pop up Bird House" die set, I decided to cut a heart window instead. My heart is from our "Slimline Pop up Bird House" die set. Yes, we have a slimline bird house too lol! I also cut it's coordinating heart frame to go around the window. This added a cute detail to the card design!
My second A2 bird house has an embossed woodgrain on it's purple layering panel. I created it with our "Slimline Woodgrain" die set. Instead of using the die to cut the woodgrain, I embossed it instead.
This time, I cut the circle window from the same "Slimline Pop up Bird House" die set. Around the window, I added a dark purple scalloped circle frame.
The rest of the card was decorated with another humming bird from our "Mama Birds" stamp set. I used its coordinating die to cut it out. The branch that the bird is sitting on is from the "Spring Birds" stamp set. I used its coordinating die to cut it out.
Finally, I accented the bird house with a few layering daisies.
That finishes off my cards today! I hope these inspire you to try out our new "A7 Pop up Bird House" die set. You can use whatever birds stamps/dies you have in your stash to decorate these!
