TH Bird Crazy Card

Used a lot of Tim Holtz products to make this card. First time using 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.

Used Distress Crackle Picket Fence on the edge of the Kraft cardstock base for this card.

Distressed the map cardstock by hand tearing & pulling up the paper of the edges.

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