SU225 Angry Birds Card

My 4 year old grandson was full of excitement as he showed me this Angry Bird game some time ago.  Kinda thought it was a bit silly but whatever.  I found out just how  serious a game this was after spending the Christmas weekend with our adult kids.  So I did a search for possible cards made using these creatures and found out I’m about a year behind!  Found these nuggets by nox2stamp off Splitcoast  easier to follow as it is mainly done using punches.  I also liked dlsplu’s layout from Splitcoast so I used her idea.  I know nothing about the game, I’m assuming these ladies do.  I have a 30 year old SIL who is nuts about the game so this card is for his birthday in March.

I went through my scraps to make these so I am only guessing at the colors of cardstock that I used.

Angry Bird parts:

Used the 1/8” companion circle Coluzzle or about 1-5/8” to cut his body from Real Red, sponged black.

Angry Bird parts 
Chest – SU 1-3/8” circle punch in white, sponged red.  Once I glued this in position and cut off what I didn’t need, I sponged the bottom in black.

Eyes – SU 1/2” circle punch in white, sponged black.  Dots were done using my black Zig marker.

Eyebrows or is that a Frown?? – SU horizontal punch in black.

Beak – star punch by EK Success in More Mustard, sponged Chocolate Chip.

Feathers – SU 5-petal flower punch in Real Red, sponged black.

I added mounts to the back of him so he is raised.

Pig parts:

Body – SU 1-3/8” circle punch in Old Olive, sponged black.

Pig parts
Snout – large eye from the SU owl punch in Green Galore, sponged Garden Green.  Put a mount behind so it is raised.

Eyes – small eye from the SU owl punch in white, sponged Garden Green.

Eyelids – small eye from the SU owl punch cut in half in Old Olive, sponged black.

Ears - SU 1/2” circle punch in Old Olive, sponged black.

Used my black Zig marker for the markings.

Cage parts (if that’s what it is):

Cut gray cardstock 2” x 2-1/4”, cut inside away to leave a 3/8” frame, sponged black.  Used the Creative Memories corner rounder in the top, left corner.


Sizziz die in Garden Green, sponged black.  I had to cut 2 of them to fit across the card.

Sling Shot:

Creamy Caramel stamped with SU! Woodgrain stamp set in Chocolate Chip.  SU Word Window punch, sponged with Chocolate Chip.  1/16” hole punch, brad, 8” hemp.  Once I tied my knots, I cut off what I didn’t need.  A neat trick I learned in my sewing days – to put yarn or thread or, in this case hemp through a small hole, add a dab of glue to one end.  Work it in with your fingers to make a narrow point.  Once it dries, it is easy to thread through.


SU Canvas stamp set in Real Red.  Mount to a black card.


SU Smarty Pants stamp set in Garden Green.  SU Decorative Label punch, sponged black.
