Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – A Gorgeous Swirly Bird

Last week’s Card & Cuppa classes saw the return of a favourite, Swirly Bird.

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird with HIPPOFROG Designs

This classy Birthday Card uses just three colours, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.

Firstly, the ‘splats’ were stamped across the cardstock.  Next, a strip punched using the Decorative Ribbon Border was attached to the card.

We then took a 2″ Circle Punch and punched a hole in the card.  Placing this piece over the Lemon Lime Twist Layer, we stamped tone-on-tone through the hole.  This greeting is from the fabulous Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set.

These two stamp sets create a Happy Birthday Gorgeous Swirly Bird!

On separate strips of card we stamped multiple leaves and flowers before cutting out the leaves and punching out the flowers.

These were then SNAIL-ed around the edge of the hole before we used Dimensionals to attach the top to the sentiment layer.  This adds a depth to the project and draws the eye to the sentiment.

Finally, we added Rhinestones to the centre of a handful of flowers.

To join us at next week’s Card & Cuppa classes, book your place by 18:00 the day before.

Happy crafting
