Spring Is In The Air - Day 3 of 4

For the 3rd day of my spring celebration, a happy bird takes flight in an interactive card.  
(For Days 1 and 2, please scroll down or click "here" and "here")


This small element is a removable magnet!


Here's a look at all the wonderful images in this new 
Penny Black spring set called Nature's Wishes!

Make-It-Quick Instructions 
  1. Create a 3 ¾” square top-fold card from white cardstock and wrap a green ribbon around the front flap and secure the ends on the front.  Set aside.
  2. On a 3 ¼” square of white cardstock, stamp the image and sentiment in Onyx Black VersaFine and then color.  (Tip/Hint:  Glue a small piece of metal behind the bird on the reverse side of the cardstock.  This will hold the magnet in place.)  Round the top right and bottom left corners.  Attach to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam.
  3. Stamp the image a second time on white cardstock.  Use a circle punch to trim the image and then punch a second circle from cardboard.  Color the image and adhere it to the cardboard.
  4. Attach a magnet to the back and apply a coat of gloss varnish to the front.  Let dry.  Place the magnet on the card overlapping the corresponding image.

You can also see additional interactive inspiration today on the Penny Black Blog.

I'll be "hoppin" by tomorrow with another spring card for Day 4.
