With the trimmer, cut out a white card (12x24cm), fold in the middle. In the centre of the front, make a round hole with the Everywhere Window Punch™.
Cut 2 layers (11.5 x 11.5 cm) using the jeans cardstock. Make a hole in the middle of one and cut off the corner of the other (curve to make the pocket).
Glue them on top of each other with 3D pads and then onto the card.
Cut 2 strips in jeans paper (15 x 2.5 cm).
Use one on the front as the jeans belt.
Attach all the elements (use 3D pads to create 3D effects) and decorate by drawing some stitches onto the card using a gold pen.
The 2nd strip will be for the inside of the card to create the nest. Cut the top with a Paper edger to make a natural effect.
For the inside, cut a white rectangle (12 x 15.5 cm). Fold it at 0.5 – 3 – 3 – 9 cm and make a hole as shown on the 2nd diagram. Glue this inside the card (on 0.5
and 9 cm parts).
Cut out a big Circle from the jeans paper with the ShapeCutter™ and the Circle ShapeTemplate™ and stick this in the centre of the white background (for the
background of the nest).
Cut out a big and a small petal with the Flowers ShapeTemplate™ to create birds (body and wings). Punch holes with the hand punch for their eyes and cut out their beaks with a cutter in yellow paper.
Cut a square in beige paper, write ‘new baby’ on it and fix it on the front of the card using brown brads.
