If you fold your colored cardstock in half lengthwise, you can easily make two lovebird cards.
Trace the body of the bird onto the colored cardstock making sure to place the area that was marked "fold" on the fold of the paper.

All that's left now is to write a special message on the inside of your card and send this little bird on his way to spread some love!
