Hanging Bird House

Last week I went to craft with my friend Jane and she had found a cute little bird house template. It was really easy to cut out and she had used some of the gorgeous Stampin' Up Ivory card stock to print it on.
Jane also has one of the new Stampin' Up Christmas sets - Pines and Poinsettias so of course I had to have a go with it!

As you can see I added my owl to the front of the birdhouse but the 2 Step bird punch works just as well. The leaves are scraps of card stock inked with Old Olive ink before being punched out.
Here is a view of the side

And the back

I had so much fun making this that I have joined Jane's workshop classes - we are called the Powick Paper Dollies - I went to my first workshop yesterday and I will show you what I made when I have finished adding the final touches to them.
Off now to curl up in front of the fire and watch T.V - oh maybe not it's football :(     See you soon - Jacqueline xx
