#2 TH Bird Crazy Card

Used a lot of Tim Holtz products to make this card. Used the Bird Crazy stamps & dies. I really like how the stamps & dies have wonderful detail. The dies even cut out the piece between the bird's legs and there are pieces for the eyes, beak & wings.

Stamped the bird multiple times so I could paper piece the eyes & beak.

Distressed the map cardstockusing TH paper distresser & TH Distress Ink.

Used Collage Medium Crazing on the map.

Stamped a sentiment that works for so many occasions: birthday, Fathers Day, graduation, travel, etc.
