Sharp Birdie

I watched a video from Jennifer McGuire that showed how she used tulle on a window card. I thought it was very cute, so I set out to make one. I have had this yellow tulle for many years, I used to crochet pot scrubbers with it, but it now has use in my paper crafting!

I die cut the card base and blue panel at the same time using a square Die-Versions from Scrapyland. The tulle is glued down to the card base, then the blue panel on top of that. I stamped, paper pieced, and fussy cut the cute birdie from the Smiley Happy Critter Crew Two set from Your Next Stamp. The fun patterns from the retired Stampin Up paper gives this birdie some character. The glasses is a die cut from Taylored Expressions, but were a little too big for his eyes, so I glued them to his wing instead. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set, and I added some enamel Gum Drops from Your Next Stamp to the bottom.

I was also inspired by the CAS on Sunday challenge, where the theme is 'Critters'.

Thank you for visiting today!
