Country Birdhouse Friend Card

Today, I’m sharing a bright and cheery card using Stampin’ Up!’s Country Birdhouse Bundle. I just love how you can mix and match all of the pieces to create a variety of birdhouse designs. 

Click here to view a previous project, a super cute supply box, I created with this bundle. Or, here’s one that uses the birdhouse as a dog house. Click here to view that blog post. 

Ok, now on to today’s project. Here are a few details and measurements. Be sure to watch the video below where I offer step-by-step instructions for creating this cute DIY card. (My friend Linda in Michigan inspired me with a similar card. I love when she shares her creative ideas with me.)

  • Thick Basic White card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Basic White card stock panel measuring 5 1/4 x 4
  • Pieces die cut for the birdhouse include: birdhouse base (Country Woods 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper), roof and base (Gorgeous Grape), gable decoration (Petunia Pop), flowers (Daffodil Delight), and greenery (Granny Apple Green).
  • Bird stamped with Memento, die cut, and colored with Petunia Pop and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Country Birdhouse Box

Country Birdhouse Box

Today, I’m sharing a fun supply box inspired by my friend and teammate, Gina. She demonstrated this box design at our team meeting. I just had to share the design with all of you. I love that you can store so many things in this handy box, such as cards, embellishments, adhesives, and more. And, you can make it with card stock. 

Be sure to watch the video below to see how this box comes together. I use the 2024-2026 In Colors and Stampin’ Up!’s Country Birdhouse Bundle for my box. (Just a quick note: Stampin’ Up!’s stamp set and die bundles are on sale for an additional 10 percent off through June 30, 2024.)

You’ll need two sheets of matching card stock measuring 8 1/4 x 9 3/4. Follow the scoring and cutting directions below. You can also follow along with the video.
