A Little Birdy told me Birthday card..."Make the Print-n-Cut" technique (Step Three)

Step Three: Arranging the layers for cutting and Adding Color Blocks

Each of these shapes will need to be cut from different parts of the paper, so move them around.  Make sure they have plenty of space between them as a "safety zone" (more on that later!).

Bring in a rectangle (from Basic Shapes) and place it behind the beak and legs.  Place it on its own layer and send it to the bottom. Size it to be bigger than the legs and beak (leave at least 1/2 inch on all sides).   You may need to move your pieces around a bit to allow for this safety zone.

Do the same with the black.  Place it on it's own layer and color it black.  Of course, you will not need to do this for the white shape of the bird (the shadow shape we made) since the paper is white!

See next post for printing!
