Here I am again with my Friday feature – a Christmas card using one of our all occasion stamp sets.
For the Birds has this cute little ice skating bird, complete with Christmas sentiment.
Please pop along to our FREE Open House tomorrow if you get chance and see this little cutie up close and personal.
The card base is an A6 landscape of Island Indigo, matted with Quatrefancy Specialty DSP (130141). After stamping the skating bird from For the Birds (W132001 or 126407) in Black Stazon onto Whisper White card, it was coloured with a Blender Pen and Soft Suede, Island Indigo and Pool Party inks/markers). Frames were die cut from Pool Party and Island Indigo card using the Apothecary Accents (127003) and Ovals Collection framelits (129381). The new magnetic platform (130658) makes this such a doddle now! More about it soon. These frames were adhered together and then popped up on dimensionals over the skating bird on the card front. Two tiny ornaments were punched from Island Indigo card using the Merry Minis punch pack (126882 available from the carry over list of items from our previous Autumn/Winter catalogue), trimmed with a tiny bit of the same DSP and popped up on slivers of dimensionals on either side of the main image. Finally a little sparkle was added under the skates, to his hat and to all the ornaments using Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details (127845).
As always with these all occasion sets, For the Birds isn’t just for Christmas and I’ll be back with another option from the same set sometime in the next week.
Hope to see you tomorrow at our FREE Open House (we should be nice and cool in the Church Hall)
