  • 2. 1 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Using your scallop punch cut (used to make the flower on the front) Now this technique I learned from my upline Kendra Richardson who learned it from another Stampin Up demonstrator's Melissa Stout home tutorial video. 2 (2 3/8" scallop circle
2 (1 3/4" scallop circle)
Punch out your two step bird. I used the basic black cardstock to give the bird a shadow effect, but again that is optional.
Continue punching until you are all complete and assemble your card.
The envelope is a template I cut out from another envelope using the love letter designer paper series. Use a velcro and attach to the inside of the tab punch (this will keep the card shut).
I hope you enjoyed this lovely card that I made to share with you. Please come again! Happy Scrapin with Scrapin Pretty!

Well, I am in the process of discovering what I want to be when I grow up and I realized that like Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz, "there's no place like home", so with that being said, I plan on moving and starting all over! Where the storm takes me is where I will go, but only if God lights the path. As I enter this new journey, I will share new insights, spiritual growths, and I will try to demonstrate that in my crafts. So, stay tune as I take off this new journey!!!!! I will surrender my life to the Lord!!!
