Jack's 6th Birthday card: Angry Birds

My Nephew Jack is turning 6 in a few weeks! I found this fun Angry Birds punch art tutorial on pinterest and had to give it a try. I decided to make it into a wobbler so it jiggles about and looks like it is flying through the air.

 
I didn't have all the punches suggested so I improvised using Spellbinders Classic Circles, a couple of woodware circle punches, the heart from the Sizzix Home Sweet Home die, I didn't have any triangle punches or dies so I cut two squares in half for the beak and then I hand cut a 'V' shape for the eyebrows and a fork shape for his tail. Really simple.


 
The background is made with distress inks; Squeezed Lemon and Spice Marigold with Moved Lawn on the edges of the grass, a name and number, and then the - and ta da!
 
I hope he like it :)
 
*- Please not that obviously these will NOT be available in my etsy shop, because a) this is someone else's tutorial and b) Angry Birds is a registered trademark, but feel free to give it a try your self, the punch art was really simple and on it's own might make a great gift tag or party invitation.
