Bird on the Dock, Stampin’ Up

A really cool example one of the many birds you can make with the soon to be retired  Bird Builder Punch. So many great possibilities, but if you’ve been with me for a bit now, you know i have an obsession with the nautical themed card.:-). I simply adore the sea and will really miss this set once it’s gone. Also I mistakenly said the Modern Label Punch was retiring but it has already been retired from last year.  However another punch you could use in its place is the retiring Word Window Punch. It also fits all the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps which is another retiring set. It has so many different holiday and standard greetings it would be a fantastic addition to your collection. My only advice is get it before it’s gone!
Full card demo is on the video, but a quick summary:

Soft Sky base card 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″

Watercolor Paper layer 4″ by 5 1/4″

3/4″ strip for the Hardwood Pier Piling

2 1/2″ scrap of Cherry Cobbler for the life bouy 

And some Whisper White for the bird and greeting piece.
