BIRD BALLAD Laser-Cut Cards Series – Card #3

BIRD BALLAD Laser-Cut Cards Series – Card #3


Welcome! Before I ever started creating the BIRD BALLAD Laser-Cut Cards Series, I decided I wanted to make a mix of cards to cover several different occasions to gift to my step-mom Cathy. Birthdays, congratulations, encouragement, sympathy, thanks and all-purpose were on my list.

To make it easy, I divided the twelve cards from the BIRD BALLAD LASER-CUT CARDS & TIN set into three main designs. You saw the first design in the cards I shared Monday and Tuesday (with two more coming next week). In Card #3, you’ll see the start of the second design using the STITCHED SHAPES DIES (still my top favorite die set, although the STITCHED NESTED LABELS DIES from this suite are a very-close second!)


WooHOO for one-stop shopping! Everything you need to make tons of gorgeous projects can be found in this BIRD BALLAD Suite, which includes these scrummy goodies:

Everything is available individually, but just go for the suite! You’ll enjoy the most versatility and value, which will make you smile… especially when you discover all you can do with it!

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 I’ll be sharing today and tomorrow, 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 Calypso Coral Cardstock to the back of the laser-cut front. Start here before moving on to the other instructions. (Watch for my savvy tips later this week on the easiest (and cheapest) way to adhere intricate pieces. The same method can be used for these cards!)

  • 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!
