As well as the Anniversary card I made for my brother and his girlfriend from me, I was also asked to make one for my brother to receive from Alex. I obviously wanted it to be completely different to the one I'd made for them both, so I used the Internet to search for ideas and ended up using the Two-Step Bird Punch for this one.
This punch is amazing! Like the owl punch it has so many uses, though I stuck with it's primary function as a bird.
I decided to use the Springtime Vintage DSP from the mini catalogue, though I only used a small strip of it. However, I did use the colours from this paper stack to form the basis of the card. Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake, plus some Whisper White.
I punched out a couple of birds in Rose Red and dauber the edges with the same colour ink. The hearts were punched from Rose Red card also with the Small Heart Punch, and again daubed with ink on the edges.
The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Sealed with a Kiss. I really love this script writing with the heart linking the words. It's such a shame it was retired at the end of the last catalogue.
The hearts and the bird wings were all popped onto the card with Dimensionals to prevent the card looking to flat. I think it's a really cute card and hope that Alex is pleased with ti as well.
