  3. Using Early Espresso, stamp the branch on Crumb Cake, color in the leaves with the Wild Wasabi marker. Die cut.
  4. Using the Banner Triple Punch, punch the end of the Soft Sky cardstock. Using Early Espresso, stamp the sentiment on the banner piece as shown.

  6. Adhere the banner to the card base about a ½” from the bottom and close to the left side.
  7. Place the circle on the card base so you can determine where you want to adhere the branch. Adhere the branch and bird.
  8. Adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the circle (put one under the birds head). Reveal the sticky.  Wind the Copper Metallic Thread around your fingers 5 times.  Place on the dimensional under the birds head.   Adhere to card base.
