MFT Homespun Birdhouse Card

It took me awhile to find the name of this die set because I kept searching in Memory Box but when I shortened my search to bird house die I was able to find the name!

I'm trying to make more generic type cards such as thinking of you and such so the cards can be used for any occasion and I thought this sentiment fit the card rather well.

Supplies used:

MFT Homespun Birdhouse die set
Memory Box Dies
  Tender Leaves & Grove Branch
Cuttlebug folders 
  Distressed Stripes, Birds & Swirls, Swiss Dots
Stampin Up Punches -
   Word Window, Modern Label, Itty Bitty Flower
Stampin Up sentiment
Viva Decor Pen - dark brown
K & Co paper

When I thought the card was done I felt like it was missing something and that is when I added the little punched flowers, made from something similar to vellum, and dotted centers with the Viva Decor Pen it seemed to be what the card  needed. I'm always amazed at what adding just a little extra can do!


  1. What an adorable card. I can see so many uses for it ... Congrats on your new home, We're having a House Warming Party, A birdie told me ___, friend to friend, Birds of a Feather, Adding a limb to your family tree, Have you heard ___, etc. Love the details, like the flowers, and how cute is that heart at the end of the tail feather! SWEET!

  3. I agree, there are so many uses. The first thing that I looked at the card I saw the sweet flowers, I also
    like the proportions of the card
    I make cards without a sentiment until I know who it is for. I will need to fill up my guy cards , and make multiple anniversary cards , as so many people I know got married in June
