Birthday card with a birdhouse that actually swings!

Hi friends, I have a fun card to share with you today with a little bird, sitting on his birdhouse, and the birdhouse swings on a branch full of flowers.

I combined several different Spellbinders products for this, but the most important ones were the "Holly Jolly Gnome" (this one has the hanging mechanism die) and the "Build a Spring Birdhouse" die set. The branch came from the "Sweet Birds on a Branch" die set while the florals are from "Wreath Builder". The bird is "Sweet Birdie" and the sentiment is a hot foiled one from "Yana's Special Sentiments".

Spellbinders has come up with several interactive dies and the "Holly Jolly Gnome" set is one of the easiest to use and combine with other products. I loved working with it.

I have a YouTube video for you that shows how the card was made. I thought it would be easier to show than tell.

I hope you like this idea and will use it on your projects too.

One more thing before we wrap up, lately I find myself forwarding a lot of parts while watching a tutorial and focusing only on the main technique or design. So I have tried to do the same in my videos. No fluff, just get-to-the-point footage with the explanation. Please let me know in the comments here or on YouTube if you like it this way or if you'd rather have full step-by-step videos. I appreciate your feedback. :)


For your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used or the ones you can use for making similar cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product. Wherever available, I have used affiliate links, which means when you make a purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you) which I use to run this blog. I truly appreciate your support!
