Not Quite Navy Bird

  Here is the third and last project we did at my last Stampin' Tuesday class.  It is really an easy card that I CASEd from page 17 of the new Stampin' Up catalog.  This would be a fabulous project to do at a workshop that doesn't use any embellishments and showcases a great punch.  I used a different stamp set from the one shown in the catalog sample since this project was done at my 2009-2010 catalog retirement party I wanted to use the retiring sets Good Friend and Warm Words.

  First, I stamped the "dandelion" stamp from Good Friends on the Not Quite Navy card base.  I also stamped it on a piece of scrap Not Quite Navy and punched out my bird body with the XL 2 Step Bird punch.  I mounted the bird wing on the body with a dimensional.  Then I punched out 2 branches in Old Olive.  All of that was adhered to a square of Very Vanilla and Old Olive.  The welcome sentiment is stamped in Not Quite Navy.

  An easy but eye-catching card!
