You will need:
Red card blank
Pink, brown & cream card
Floral & gingham patterned paper
Floral borders & embellishment
Red sequin
Brown fineliner pen

Step 1
Layer a cream card panel and two floral border strips on to your red card blank.

Step 2
Trace the bird template on to cream card, back with brown card and trim to leave a border all the way around.

Step 3
Doodle some ‘stitches’ around the edge of your bird shape and add a dot for the eye. Snip two simple wings from patterned paper and attach to the bird with sticky foam pads.

Step 4
Handwrite or rub-on your sentiment then complete your card with a floral embellishment and a gingham border strip folded to look like a ribbon tag!
