The birdhouse flips up to reveal the sentiment, “Happy BDay”. The other sentiments are computer-generated.

I just love my Cricut Design Studio. I needed it to skew the sentiment, “Happy BDay” so it would fit inside the birdhouse. You can achieve the same result using the Cricut Gypsy.
Here is the CostCo cardstock I used:-
MemoryStor® 300 Count Scrapbook Cardstock with Crop Case
75 Designer Patterns, 4 Sheets each
Because it’s double-sided, you can get a lot of different effects and it adds visual interest. I tried to make it so the front of the card would have a minimalist design on it, and was pleasantly surprised when the back had a full design, with the inside of the card, having a leaf design centered on the card. Couldn’t get anything better than that. Hope Shawna likes it!!
