Bloggers Challenge - For the Birds

This week's Bloggers Challenge is "For the Birds"...so I combined this with an anniversary card for my husband.  Today is our 10th anniversary! 

This card came together so easily with the Framelits Hearts dies.  I didn't bother to make an envelope.  Pop the birds and the greeting up with dimensionals.  Pearl eyeballs for the birds.  Pretty!

To make it an actual card, I cut 2 of the largest hearts, and made score marks across the top of the BACK heart, so that it can open.  Picture below...

Then just add Sticky Strip to the little bitty scored flaps that you now have.  You REALLY need Sticky Strip to hold this card together.  Mono-adhesive just isn't strong enough, unless you don't care if it falls apart.

Give it a try!

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes

Cardstock:  Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade

Ink:  Poppy Parade

Other:  Big Shot, Framelits Hearts, Dots embossing folder, Poppy Parade twill ribbon, Bird Builder punch, 3-heart punch, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals, Pearl basic accents
