King Fisher…..

….is a rare bird here in Denmark. Nevertheless my youngest son age 9, has spotted one living close to the school he attends. At first I thought he had seen something else but he persisted and it turned out that one of the teachers, had seen it too. But does the little birdie want to be a photo model???? Nooooo…..way to shy for that. So after days and hours of waiting with the camera ready, I decided to make one instead. Being the complete dork at drawing, I turned to Bird of Bird’s SVGs and she made me an absolute beautiful SVG bird – ready for the cutting πŸ™‚ My main idea was to make one for my kid to hang in his room but then I thought to make a card as well:

I used the King Fisher SVG ( found hereΒ ) along with a mixture of two of Birds freebie cards – The Cherry Blossom Card and the Leaf Frame Card from the Flower Card Bundles

I used AC Cardstock in Moss, Chocolate, Rust, Vanilla, Bubblegum and Black along with some sparkling paper in two blue tones. The background is a print and cut pattern from the Silhouette Design Store. I also added some bling to the flower centers with Crystal Stickles from Ranger.

I must admit I have fallen i love with this beautiful bird and I’m so happy Bird was able and willing to help me – thank you so much Bird ❀ My son was so thrilled to have his large King Fisher hang in his room. “It is the mostΒ awesome version of a King Fisher I have ever seen, Mom” he said and bragged about it to his friends πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and know that I cherish every comment you write me ❀

  3. What a lovely story how amazing that your son spotted it, I’ve never seen a real Kingfisher and it’s one bird that I’d love to see in real life, I have beautiful birds in my garden but sadly no Kingfisher I don’t think they come to the North West of England it’s probably too cold for them.
    The card you made is beautiful well done.
