This is the third card from my Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch class held on February 17th in Mi Wuk Village, CA. The attendees loved each of their cards. A new-to-stamping-attendee, Sharon, said, after making the first card, that just that card was worth the class fee! She 'saw the light' regarding how much fun stamping can be!

From the Sweet Pea DSP, cut out the three individual trees. Be sure to leave a bit of white border around each tree.
Use Paper Snips to cut little slits, about 1/4" deep, at random widths, across the top of the 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Sweet Pea DSP.
Use Chocolate Chip ink to sponge all four edges of the So Saffron card front as well as the entire piece of grass and the bird and two wings.
Using SNAIL adhesive, attach the grass layer to the bottom of the So Saffron card front.
Use part of a Stampin' Dimensional to attach the back wing to the bird. Use 2-3 additional Dimensionals to attach the bird to the card front and another partial Dimensional to attach the other wing to the front of the bird.
Adhere the three trees grouped at the bottom of the card front using a Stampin' Dimensional for each.
Stamp a greeting at the top of the card using Chocolate Chip ink.
