Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Awesome Autumn Challenge! This card was actually inspired by a handmade birdhouse someone recently gifted me. I wanted to make her a special thank you card, so I took different elements that she used in the design and tried to recreate them in stamp form. I combined images from Winter Birds, Winter Birds Add-on, Our Friendship Grows, A Bug Deal, Scripty Autumn Sentiments, and Christmas Dreams. I stamped them all out with Jet Black Ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I started with a couple pieces of Bristol Cardstock and blended on Distress Oxide Inks. For the sky I used Broken China with the Cloudy Stencil. The grass I trimmed down with the Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders. Then I colored the taller one with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, and the shorter one with Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness.

I stamped a sentiment at the top right of the focal panel and glued it to a Mermaid card base. I added the taller of the grassy hills over top with liquid glue, and popped the shorter one up with foam tape. Then I adhered my images with a mix of liquid glue and foam tape until the scene was nice and full. I finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles and stamped on the inside with Fish Tank Ink.
