Stay chirpy all summer long and craft yourself a flock of cute bird cards! With just a few papers shapes and some doodled stitching, you can make this paper pal in no time – perfect for birthday wishes. We’ve got a step-by-step guide and a bonus template to help you!
You will need:
Red card blank
Pink, brown & cream card
Floral & gingham patterned paper
Floral borders & embellishment
Brown fineliner pen
Layer a cream card panel and two floral border strips on to your red card blank.
Trace the bird template on to cream card, back with brown card and trim to leave a border all the way around.
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.
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!
