Little Birdie Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I had the best of intentions to share a Christmasy project everyday for Christmas in July….but our life is crazy busy right now and I’m just not really keeping up my post schedule that I had hoped for. I am however keeping up creating the projects so I’ll try to get caught up.

I got out the stamps and markers for this card and colored a sweet little birdy to sing a Christmas tune. I’m using Crafter’s Companion stamps and Spectrum Noir Markers. I added a bit of Wink of Stella but it’s difficult to see it in pictures.

The stamping around the edge is from BoBunny and it’s creates a bit of a border. I  didn’t have quite enough room for a sentiment…but this works great! Pretty flowers from Petaloo and some sequins to add detail.

Isn’t that a pretty frame? I added some coordinating embossing powder to a Flourished Circle Frame chippie and heat set it for a sparkly finish.  WOC Craft Berry Bead Sprays are tucked into the flowers to create a bit of a nest for the little bird. Last but not least…Checkerboard Satin in Tropic for a simple bow.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

  1. This card is so cute! I’ve only recently come to appreciate red, white and turquoise together…very retro 50’s color combination. Takes me back…………ho! ho!ho! Merry Christmas in July!
