Paper Pumpkin Alternative May 2019


A simple change to the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin bird nest card that really makes a BIG difference.


Just coloring in the leaves, grass and eggs makes this card front from the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin card kit really POP!

I used a blender pen, markers straight up are too dark and the detail gets lost.
Leaves are old olive
Eggs are Pool Party
"Wheat stems" are Crushed Curry

Stamp the bird from Botanical Bliss onto Whisper White card stock

Use the pen end of the Crumb cake marker to add some wing accents and accents to the tail feathers

Use the brush end of Crumb Cake marker to shade the edges of the bird

Use Pumpkin Pie marker to color the beak

Use Basic Black marker to dot the eye

Cut out the bird, cutting off the legs

Use the xacto knife and cut along the top edge of the two left eggs

Place some glue on the top edge back of the bird and slide it into the slot you cut so it looks like the bird is in the nest behind the eggs.

This leaves a little slit and mark on the inside of the card see photo to the right.


To cover the inside of the card where the slit was made use one of the flower accents
