Sunny Get Well

Some Daffodil Delight cardstock puts a bit of sunshine into my Get Well Card, and coordinates with my Designer Series Paper that was used to punch out my bird.

Pear Pizzazz cardstock and a piece of the Pocketful of Posies Designer Series paper were added to my card base, along with a piece of Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon.  My scallop circle was cut with my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die.  The Whisper White circle was punched with the 2 1/2" Circle punch and then embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Using a combination of Pocketful of Posies and Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper I punched out my bird and placed him on the circle. 

When I use a punch like the Bird Builder used today, I usually just punch out the whole image each time.  Even if I am going to use different pieces for the wing and branch I still find that the easiest way to do it, instead of just trying to punch out what I want.  I save the leftover pieces in a small container, and next time I am going to use the punch I sort through my miscellaneous pieces and see if I have anything that coordinates.  I have individual containers labeled for all of my builder punches, and since Stampin' Up! products coordinate so well together, I can usually find a piece I need without always having to do extra punching.
