Happy Birthday Parrot Card

July 14, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Birthday Card which features the Parrot from Joset Design’s!

To create this card, I’ve used some new dies from Joset Designs, dies from Els van de Burgt Studio as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the 3 1/4″ Stitched Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose one of the orange polka dot patterns out of the Thinking About… Rio De Janeiro paper pack. Die cut the 3 3/4″ Stitched Square out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the Happy Birthday into two strips. Ink the edges of the words using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Party Accessories set, die cut the star glasses out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the glasses.

Step Five. From the Parrot die, die cut the body, wings, head and legs out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the entire surface of each piece using Lucky Clover Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Parrot die, die cut the tummy, tail and feathers on top of the head out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the entire surface of each piece using Twisted Citron Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. From the Parrot die, die cut the nose and feet out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the balloon out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the entire surface of each piece using Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the string for the balloon out of black cardstock.

Step Nine. From the Parrot die, die cut the eyes out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour the eyes in with a black pen.

Step Ten. Adhere the 3 1/4″ Stitched Square to the 3 3/4″ Stitched Square.

Step Eleven. Adhere your parrot together.

Step Twelve. Foam square the parrot to the left side of the 3 1/4″ stitched square. Adhere the star glasses over top of the parrots eyes. Adhere the balloon together. Adhere the balloon to the parrots right wing.

Step Thirteen. Use foam squares to adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment to the right of parrot.

Step Fourteen. Adhere the stars from inside the star glasses to the 3 1/4″ stitched square as desired. Die cut one more star out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the star. Adhere to the 3 1/4″ stitched square. To finish the card, cut a card base that measures 3 3/4″ x 7 1/2″, score at 3 3/4″. Adhere the card front to the cardbase.
