April 2017 Calendar Page

It's April! That means it's time to flip the calendar page. I seriously love how this months page came together. Totally makes me think Spring. I used the most adorable Die'sire Essentials die set from Crafter's Companion called Nature, along with beautiful papers from Sara Davies Rustic Cottage Signature Collection 6"x6" Paper Pack.

To create the soft yellow background on the page, I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply a light blend of Mustard Seed Distress Ink.

I die cut extra layers of the branch and birds from kraft cardstock, and adhered them together to make the them thicker. This makes them sturdy, and easier to adhere to the page. The cloud to the far right is popped up with dimensional foam adhesive, the other 2 are glued flat to the page.

For a little Spring bing bling, I added tiny rhinestones to the eyes. And because it's Spring...I gave momma bird a nest to sit on.

Have a great day!
