Birdies Birthday Card


One of my friends has beautiful 2 and 4-year old girls and a newborn baby boy. I decided to make a card for her that doesn't just recognize her birthday, but also celebrates her busy mommy role. My card is 5" x 7", so the brown layer is cut at 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", and the green patterned paper is cut at 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".


These two little birds are from Straight From the Nest, cut at 1 1/2" and 2".


Mama and baby bird are from 3 Birds on Parade. Mama is cut at 3 1/2", and baby is cut at 1 1/2". Isn't baby bird the cutest, with his binky and blankie?


To create my message, I used sentiments from three different My Creative Time stamp sets! "To the Best" is from My Teacher Rocks, "Mommy" is from Mom You ROCK, and the birthday saying is from Wow! So Many Candles. Click here for ordering information on all of the My Creative Time stamps.
