Fun and Fast Birdhouse

This is such a fun card to make. The little bird just makes me smile. The stamped image and sentiment are from a set called Fun and Fast notes. This is an incredibly versatile set with eight different images and greetings which you can mix and match. This is also a perfect stamp set for a new stamper as it covers so many occasions. The background was done in the coordinating wheel stamp, Fast Flowers.

Tip of the day: To punch the scalloped opening of the birdhouse, punch your cardstock with the 1 1/4" circle punch first, and then with the scallop circle punch. It will be much easier to center that way.
