Two Brown Birds
Topic: Scrap Recovery

I had a couple of birds left over from a 2010 calendar that I decided to make use of. I cut both of them into simple rectangles and rounded the corners with a punch. I also selected the same brown cardstock for the base and decided to use embossing folders as the background for both.

For this first one I embossed a simple frame and mounted the bird panel centered inside. I added a printed nature tag to the upper right corner.


For this one I used two embossing folders. I embossed tree bark on the left 1/3 and leafy branches on the right 2/3. With the bird panel in the upper right I added layered punch flowers and dropped a gold 'nail head' sticky dot into each center. I placed a printed tag with a leaf on the lower left.


You'll notice these also hinge on the left side which is an unusual orientation but I was working with table scraps and they were already folded this way.
