It should come as no surprise to anyone that I absolutely LOVE the Free As a Bird Suite. The paper is amazing. I love that there are patterns where you can just snip away and create a card with minimal stamping.  If you are not a fan of fussy cutting,  just pull out a Stitched Shape die like I did here!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

What better color is there than yellow to brighten one’s day! I drew my inspiration from the yellow birds in the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Because I wanted to create a “sweet” card, I opted to use the precious Daffodil Delight gingham paper.

Free As A Bird hello cardI added a Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut panel over a Whisper White piece of cardstock which I had embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  To tone it down slightly, I colored it in places with the Daffodil Delight watercolor pencil.

Paper Measurements:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock (4-1/4″ x 11″)
  • Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (Daffodil Delight Gingham Pattern: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″)
  • Rococo Rose  cardstock (3-1/2 x 4-1/2″, scrap)
  • Whisper White cardstock (3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″)
  • Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper (Panel cut to 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″)
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock (scrap)
  • Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (section of pattern with yellow birds)


1.  Score the Whisper White Thick cardstock at 5-1/2″.  Fold and crease to form the card base.

2.  Adhere the gingham paper to the card base.

3. Emboss the Whisper White cardstock (3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″) using the Subtles embossing folder. Color lightly using a Daffodil Daffodil watercolor pencil. Adhere to the Rococo Rose cardstock.  Adhere the Shimmer Detailed panel on top.  Add a snippet of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Gathered Ribbon 1/4″ from the bottom of the panel.  Accent with a double bow. Add to the card base using dimensionals.

4.  Using the largest Stitched Shapes Circle die, cut a circle from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  (I selected a section with three yellow birds.)  Adhere to the card in the position shown.

5.  Ink the sentiment in Crumb Cake and stamp onto Daffodil Delight cardstock. Punch out with the Classic Label punch. Layer onto Rococo Rose cardstock.  Trim the cardstock, leaving a 1/16″ border around the Daffodil Delight cardstock. Trim off the right end, and adhere to the card using dimensionals.

6.  Accent the flowers and sentiment with pearls.
