This is a card we made at our June stampers club meeting. When we made this card at club it actually ended up being a little more confusing than I was anticipating. So, I thought I would show one quick intermediate step. I started by stamping the bird and leaves on a Whisper White layer that was cut just smaller than the Gumball Green layer. That way I didn't have to stamp directly on the card base or mask the edges. After doing this stamping, I adhered this layer directly to the card base and then added everything else (except the nest) on top with dimensionals.
So, on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock I stamped the nest (half of the largest flower), the two Summer Starfruit flowers, the bird wing, and the sentiment. I cut out the sentiment using the Big Shot and a Bitty Banners Framelits die. You can punch the nest out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and the flowers with the 1/2" circle punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. The 'frame' was cut from Gumball Green card stock using the Apothecary Accents Framelits die.
I'm pretty sure I saw the idea to make the flower into a nest over on Lyssa's Song of My Heart Stampers blog. . . although now I can't seem to find her card that inspired me! Anyway, head on over anyway as Lyssa is not only a talented stamper, but a sweet person as well. :-)
