BIRD BALLAD Laser Cut Cards

Oh, these cards! The front has been laser-cut into this beautifully detailed pattern, creating a peek-a-boo effect. This means you can customize them to your heart’s content. Here’s a peek at what they look like when you get them…


For the card’s shared yesterday and today, I’m stepping up the mood by adding color behind the laser-cut front. I’ve adhered a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ panel of Pool Party Cardstock to the back of the laser-cut front. Start here before moving on to the other instructions.

  • SAVVY TIP: Before adhering the above panel, snip out the center piece at the eight connection points. The main sentiment panel you’ll be adding hides the center of this laser-cut detail, so you’ll never know it’s missing. Save it for an upcoming bonus project I’ll be sharing. Two projects from one card: savvy!
