Life Is Tweet Card

This is a little card that I just got done making. It turned out so cute. Here is what you need to make it.

Straight From The Nest Cricut Cartridge
Polka Dot Cardstock from Premium Stacks Latte Stack Textured Cardstock
Dark Purple Cardstock from Premium Stacks Latte Stack Textured Cardstock
Green Cardstock
Off White Cardstock
Black Cardstock
Brown Cardstock
Pebbles Chalk in Earth Tones
Pop Dots

Your finished card size will be 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" in black cardstock
The Bird is on page 28 in the manual
I cut out the Bird at size 2 1/2"
The "Life is Tweet" is cut out at 1 1/2" in the Off White
Hit the Phrase Shadow button and cut the phrase out
again in Green Cardstock
The first bird cut is <Bird1-s> which you have to hit shift
Then I cut out the Wing at 2 1/2" and chalked the edges
Then I cut out the Bird using the Layer/Shadow feature
in a Brown Cardstock
The Cardstock is measured at 2" x 5 1/4" for both the
polka dot and purple
(I cut them both that size and took the ribbon to hide the seams)
Take your Grosgrain Ribbon in a Country Green and hide
the seams of the cardstock
Use your pop dots to adhere the bird on your card after
 placing the ribbon
Then glue your phrases together and adhere them to the card
Chalk all the edges of your bird, wing, beak and bird
 legs for dimension
Viola, that's it! It was a simple yet cute and fun card to make.

Please feel free to leave me a comment to let me know what you think about this card. I would love to see your finished project as well. Thanks for looking.
