On today's Hop we are featuring cards made with Bird images by Tiffany Doodles!  I've decided to make a clean & simple card using the Birthday Chick Digital Stamp!  Join me and I'll show you my little tricks to make this easy card!

First of all I printed my digi onto my cardstock.  Then I cut out the top part of the hat so that I could slide the metal die under it.  I wanted the top of the hat to stick out beyond the circle!  This is a really fun technique that has endless possibilities for creativity!! I use a little painters tape to hold it in place while I run it through my Big Kick!

Now, on my set of circle dies the next size up was just a little too big to suit me so I cut my own circle for the backdrop.  I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter, but any will do.  My piece of black paper was too small to set still so I taped it down.  Then I placed my birdie on top of the black paper so I could see which size I wanted to cut. 

Here is a close up.  Gotta make sure the MS logo is in the center of your digi while you are looking for which size you want to cut.  After you figure that out then, I moved birdie out the way and cut my black circle out!

And here you have it!  Fits just like I wanted it to!

Next you cut away the white paper around the top of the hat with your precision point scissors!

Then use a black pen to color any what areas that didn't get cut.  Makes it look MUCH better!!

Then I cut out my labels for the sentiment!  1 black and 1 white!

Then I cut the edges off the white so I would have a perfect fit for my sentiment!

Then I cut my paper stripes! My finished card size is 5" x 6.5"  So I cut 5 yellow strips at 3/8" each.  Then 4 white strips and 3/8" each!

Glue your strips down first before cutting.  Like this.

This is what it will look like!

Then take your card to the paper cutter and line it up with your card base and cut strips off!  This method will make everything nice and neat!

Then I used my bow easy to make a little tiny pink bow for my card!  LOVE this thing!!

Then I used my corner rounder and cut all for corners on the 1/2" setting!  Then all you have left to do is assemble your card!!  Make sure you center everything before gluing!   ..... Tiffany thinks to self.... maybe they won't notice that I didn't get my birdie in the center!! shhh!!
