Are you curious about what I came up with this week? I was thinking hard and decided to make a square card, a 5.5x5.5" card and add a little something different :D:D. have you seen those chipboard books at your local craft stores? They are only about $1 and they have like 5-6 pages. They have all kinds of different shapes and one I had picked up a while back was a house shape. Since I wanted to use one of the February stamps "Nest" I knew this would be perfect. Where does the different fold come in, you might ask? Well, the different fold is the square card for one, but I am also using a technique called "Folded Paper Frame". So, I made my square card, added some Basic Grey Origins DP to the chipboard shape. glued 2 pieces of the Origins DP together (Basic Grey paper pads are not double sided and the paper should be double sided for the folded paper frame ;D) ,added my colored in and cut out NEST and decorated my card. To make it look a little more like a birdhouse per say, I added a Maya Road chipboard bird which I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and added a Recollections golden half pearl for an eye, all birds need eyes, right? :D:D. Have a look for yourself

So, what do you think? Doesn't this frame look like the little birdhouse is open and you can just reach in for that nest?
