Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds bundle is a happy and sweet little photopolymer stamp set that comes with the Songbird Builder Punch. I paired it with the Design a Daydream designer series paper for today’s card that I made yesterday afternoon for my Facebook Live. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I folded and burnished the folds of both the large and smaller card base in mountain and valley fashion so that the large panel would be in the back for the large card base and the large panel would be in the front for the small card base. I adhered the three panels of the leaf pattern Design a Daydream designer series paper to the larger card base with liquid glue. I adhered the floral pattern DSP to the large section of the smaller card base and the striped pattern to the middle section.

I folded the small card base and applied Tear & Tape to the back of the small section. I removed the tape covers and adhered it to the center of the large panel of the large card base. I opened the small base and closed the large base so it overlapped the small card and applied Tear & Tape to the front inside edge of the large base and the back edge of the large section of the small base. I removed the tape covers and closed the small card and pressed the taped sections. This makes the double Z design from the top of the card.

I cut a circle from Basic White using the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies and stamped the the circle with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds branch in Soft Suede, leaves in Pear Pizzazz and music notes in Blackberry Bliss. I used the Songbird punch to punch the birdie and wing from Pool Party, the little beak from Daffodil Delight and the belly from Basic White.

I adhered the belly and beak to the bird with liquid glue and stamped the eyes in Blackberry Bliss. I adhered the wing to the bird with a dimensional. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds stamp set in Blackberry Bliss on Daffodil Delight and cut it out with the small banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with glue dots and popped the stamped circle on top with dimensionals. I popped the bird on the circle with dimensionals and finished the front with three shiny resin Daffodil Delight flowers. Note that I forgot to put them on in the video, so I put them on afterwards. LOL.

I stamped the branch from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds stamp set in Soft Suede across the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and part of the notes in Blackberry Bliss. I stamped some flowers in Daffodil Delight and adhered the panel to the inside of the small card.

This Double Z-Fold card will open flat, so you could replace the smaller card middle section with a Basic White decorated panel if you wanted more space to write a personal note. The Double Z-Fold is pretty easy to do, and makes your handmade card extra special. And the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds bundle is so cute that everyone will be smiling!
