Little Birdie Holiday


Making cards for Christmas is usually a fall and winter task for me, but I decided to start adding to my stash earlier this year. FESTIVE FRIDAY  is a great incentive and inspiration for creating holiday cards all through the year. This week's challenge is to add a bird to a project. 

Here's my 'take' on this challenge, using a variety of stamps and textures. 
Card Base -  Rustic White; Stampin' Up Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder; 

 Focal Panel - Tiny Treats: Christmas; Loves Lives Here: Holiday;  copic markers;
        Pure Poppy ink; Memento Tuxedo Black & Cottage Ivy ink; 
         Limitless Layers 1 3/4" Circles; 1 1/8" circle punch; 
       Card stock - Pure Poppy, Rustic White, green (from my stash)

Sentiment Panel -  Holiday Lights; Love Lives Here: Holiday

 Supplies from Papertrey Ink, unless noted.

Thank you for visiting today.
