Creative Circle April Blog Hop - Birds

Hello and welcome to the Creative Circle design team blog hop. The theme for this month is Birds and we all have made a wonderful 3D bird feeder project designed by Liz Holloway. The bird house has been designed to house cards and envelopes and makes a stunning home deco that can also be suspended. 

Here is mine... A monochromatic design taking cue from the patterned paper mainly Olive Green, white and black and coordinated throughout. I have used a retired dsp left over from last year's holiday season hehe to decorate. The bird feeder has been constructed with the white cardboard that comes in the dsp packaging so it was a good way to recycle materials on hand.

The sets used are Best Birds stamp set for the sentiments and the coordinating Birds and Blooms dies. The two bold bird dies are just the right proportions to the bird feeder. I have also used the flourish thinlits dies as it compliments the die cut birds.  

Here are the cards... I have kept the design similar with the bold striping using a Mama Elephant die frame and placing it over the Olive Green Color Theory dsp. The sentiments has been black heat embossed over the die cut circle vellum. Glitter enamel dots used as an embellishment to dress up the clean and simple layout. These glitter enamel dots have also been used in place of the dowels for the bird house in keeping with the gradation of colour. 

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. This was a fun project and would make a great gift for a bird lover. You too can create your own bird house using an electronic cutter.
