Dropping You a Line

Although it looks like this card took 5 minutes to make--no card is quite that simple--but this one was close. 

The birds on a wire were made using a Martha Stewart border punch.   The tails were a little blunt so I hand cut grooves in the tails to make them look more feathery.  I chose three coordinating colors and then printed the sentiment on card stock using one of the colors.  This was a little tricky as I had to figure out where to put the sentiment in MS Word.  Tip: Use a text box so you can move the sentiment around exactly where you want it.   Lastly, I adhered the birds and cut a single bird to go above the sentiment.  Done!

Finished card size is 4 1/4"x5 1/2".  The idea for the card came from Paper Crafts Magazine.
