I started my card with some card stock and scrap paper that were on my desk from a previous card making session. I then began building layers of die cuts representing the items in my back yard. Using the Fancy Floral Butterfly Corner from Cottage Cutz, I cut two, one for each offset corner. I have lots of plants and flowers that attract butterflies in my yard, along with birdhouses of all shapes and sizes. Using the Birdhouse Die Cut set from Impression Obsession, I die cut the three houses to place on my card, along with two die cut birds that I adhered with Joy! Foam Pads - small to give the birds depth and dimension.
I also have lots of squirrels in my yard, so using the Squirrel Set die from Impression Obsession I cut two squirrels and adhered one on the ground and the other hanging from the dangling birdhouse that hangs from the tree in my back yard. Using my Wink of Stella- clear glitter pen I highlighted some of the butterflies and flowers on the corners. To complete my card, I added a satin bow and tag to the tallest birdhouse, and my Backyard Card was complete.
