Pin It Now!
I just love this birdhouse...and fortunately, the girls at my Mommy & Me did, too!
Last summer, Stampin' Up! came out with a mini milk carton die, but I've been using a larger template since long before. The mini milk carton, in some ways, is cuter though. It subscribes to Cuteoverload.com's rule of cuteness: what is small, is cute. Nevertheless, my much larger version is cute, too!
I used two embosslets - Beautiful Wings and Flower Burst - to decorate the scalloped roof, and a handstamped bird. I love that the flourish in Bliss fits the bird perfectly - I even found part of the flourish to make the perfect eye. :)
The colors are Perfect Plum, Pretty in Pink and Baja Breeze...what a lovely combination. I couldn't resists punching the branch from Certainly Celery, though!
