I cut the Bird Branch by Tim Holtz from kraft card stock. I then cut just the bird from blue card stock. I applied Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Gathered Twigs onto the branch to give me some variation in color on the branch. I glued the branch to the card front and trimmed it to the edge of the card. I trimmed the bird die cut to ensure I only had legs and adhered him directly over the kraft colored one. I used a push pin to make a hole for the eye and placed the tiny brad and pressed the prongs apart inside.
Option: A greeting could be added to the right of the bird.
