Bird House Birthday Card

For a friend for whom I bought a very cute primrose yellow bird house.

Used an online template for the bird house. Jeeeez how I hate having to use scissors these days to cut things out but I'm much too dangerous to be let loose with a scalpel!

Thank goodness for the die cutter for the roof edging and the hole. The roof edging was cut from some pieces I had from an old marquetry kit. I knew they'd come in handy one day!

The bird is a actually a brooch. A while back I bought a sewing cabinet from a lovely, lovely couple on Ebay and got tons of free goodies with it. This bird brooch was in there so used it on the card so it can be detached and actually worn.
