Hoppy Birdie to You

Candice Windham

I love to make birthday cards. I don’t always get them in the mail on time, but I still love the creative process of making them. This sentiment has been around for a long time in one form or another, but I can remember my Dad wishing me “Hoppy Birdie” when I was a child. I love being able to use the Duetica Lettering Arts Studio to create the sentiment I want without having the stamp. That’s just one more thing that won’t be taking up valuable real estate in my studio. For this project, I used the Duetica DT Saxi font. I started with 5 1/2 inch card stock, then cut the bird, cage and wing from Caged Bird die. I applied Inka Gold to bird and wing and did the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink for contrast. The tag with sentiment added that personal touch.
