I love this bird! How stinkin' adorable. I cut this bird at 3.5 inches from the Nate's ABC cartridge and I love how it turned out. I am so glad I've been spending some time digging through my stash of papers to use up. The cloud paper I used is from K and Company--I love it! I'm sure I picked it up just because I thought I needed clouds--but upon further investigation I LOVE the gridlines on this paper-- it's in an Old Olive-ish color and I really like it.
I've not played a lot with this cartridge but I do love the layers it offers and the attention to detail in each of the layers is fun. I did tweak the beak on the bird a little bit as I didn't like how the worm or something or other looked in his mouth :) So I chopped it off! I also changed up this card by not using a standard A-2 size. This card will fit in a business size envelope easily. Enjoy!
