Hello Stampers,
The pretty Bird Ballad Laser Cut card for today. If you love detail you sure gonna love these detail card with the pretty scalloped envelops. Plus they come in a cute metal tin. See page 168 of the annual catalog or above in the picture you can see all. 

I have a a video to share how simple it is to add any color cardstock inside the card. This is awesome, you can add any color of your choice and it look like you have a variation of color card but all come from the same card base just a different insert.
The video can be view below or on My You Tube Channel

I did 3 super quick card in different color to show you how the colors change the look of these cards. 

The card above the insert is Seaside Spray. The front I only hand cut some of the bird from the Bird Ballad designer paper and Voila the card was finish. Quick and simple but so detailed. In all the 3 that I share today I think this is my favorite pick. What is your favorite?

For this one I use the Crushed Curry. I added a a 5 x 1 strip of very vanilla then the 2¼ basic black and 2″ very Vanilla circle. To jazz it up a little more I added the Flower Faceted Gems.

Insert Measurement 

For the color insert I suggest to cut the card stock just a little smaller then the front of the card base.
The size of card front is 5½ x 4¼. To give the space for the fold, I cut mine at 4-1/8 x 5-15/16. For the 4-1/8 that is in between 4 and 4-1/4.  I bet I scare you with the 5-15/16. Well to make it easy just place the cardstock just above the 5½ mark, so it just one little hair shy of the 5½. The reason for a little shorter on the width it make it easier to adhere to the inside of the card base and not sticking out. 

I understand that measurement is difficult for many so I have a video to help you all with measurement. That video was part of my series of Stampin’ 101 way back in 2014. If you wish to view the video CLICK HERE. I think that video will help many understanding all the measurement.

These 2 picture you can see that the top one I adhere all around the insert. Below I only adhere the insert at the top this is much easier to adhere just the top. In the video I have many tips on how to adhere the insert.
