Babies and Birds – Spring is around the corner!

I just got the Stampin’ UP! Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch(117191)!  I have waited patiently for it to arrive…not really…but it arrived last week amidst all the craziness of us trying to sell our home.  This punch is just the perfect touch for your card making or your scrapbooking for babies, spring, new homes (nests) or any thinking of you card! 

For Baby Nathan One of my very good friends just had her baby (Nathan Joseph) this past week so I decided to make her a cute little quick card with this punch.  I have seen the bird punch used with flowers and specifically the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch (118073) but I haven’t seen it yet with a cute little nest.  This flower punch made making the nest a breeze.  The Solid Stripe single stamp (115707) gave the nest a hay feel and a quick fringe of the flower petals were the final touches to this cute little nest.

The card is 3D 4.25” x 4.25” and I have a bit of cardstock behind the bird holding it up so that is appears sitting in the nest instead of flat against it.  I don’t think the picture does it justice, but I’m sure you get the picture.  It might be even cuter with some little eggs – What do you think?
