Cuckoo For You

 I am not a big card maker but I do try to make cards for most occasions since I have all the supplies. My DH and I usually do little more than exchange cards for Valentine's Day so that  is one of the cards I try to make so it is more "special".

Anyway, the Finally Friday card challenge this week at 2 Peas is for an interactive card and I have had this idea rattling around in my head ever since I saw Laura Craigie's video. Looking at it now, I see I must've been influenced by her Kraft CS and woodgrain background though I had forgotten what her card looked like :P. Anyway, I am not entirely happy with the WG stamping on this so I would have made the crad smaller if I had it to do over again but I was completely winging it and I am not about to start over :P I started with a 6x6 card base. I cut the bottom corners and then I cut the roof line from the top. Then I cut doors from the front, lined the bird's room and inside doors, and then glued the front down (the flaps are all that open now).

Supplies: Archivers CS, My Minds Eye papers (Love Me), bird sticker from Paper Bliss (Salon line), Making Memories chipboard clock, Hero Arts stamp, Ranger distress ink, Glitz letters, Sharpie pen
