I hinted last week that I had another card made using the Free As A Bird stamp set where I just HAD to have the bird with some blue feathers. Today I’m sharing this card! The stamp set is part of a fantastic new suite called Bird Ballad and part of this suite is the new Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin. Which happens to be my product of the week!
This is a fantastic set of 12 laser-cut Very Vanilla card bases and 12 Very Vanilla envelopes featuring a scalloped edge flap. Best part is that you also get the tin to use to store your wonderful projects – or it would make lovely packaging for a gift! Being part of the Bird Ballad suite the first project I shared just had to feature the Free As A Bird stamp set.

Tips for creating this card:
- Stamp the bird, flowers and leaves on Shimmery White card stock using Memento Ink – this ink is perfect when working with Stampin’ Blends. It wont be picked up by the blends.
- Fussy cut the stamped images on the black line to get a clean look.
- Mount a piece of coloured card stock (I used Balmy Blue) to the back of the card front so that the laser cut lace is more emphasised. This also makes sure you can’t read the inside of the card till you open it.
- Use a Glue Dot to adhere the Bird Ballad Trinket to the card.
- Stamp using Sahara Sand the birds onto a piece of Very Vanilla cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Then stamp the sentiment on top using the Memento Ink. This gives extra visual interest to your sentiment.
- If you love both the Free As A Bird stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies you can save 10% by purchasing the bundle. I’ve listed both the individual products as well as the bundle in the Product List below.
I decided it would be fun to make the card a tri-fold. I did this by cutting the piece of Balmy Blue card stock slightly bigger than the card front and then scoring 1/4″ which I used to attach to the back of the card on the right hand side. You can see the open card below:
This time I decided to decorate the front of the envelope as well as the back. I’m showing here the front:
Using pre-made cards and envelopes makes card making super easy. These Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards as super adorable and I’m looking forward to showing you some inspiration in using them this week.
Thank you for visiting my blog! I really enjoy sharing with you my creations and I hope that you are inspired to spend some time being creative.
