Last year I bought these cute “Holiday” birds and I do love them.
They are from the Dina Wakely Holiday Scribbly Birds set, and I bought them so close to Christmas (at a discounted rate) I didn’t get much of a chance to use them.
This challenge from Merry Monday Christmas Challenge to use a bird on a Christmas card was right up my alley.
I decided I wanted something entirely different for this challenge, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use music in the images. So I stamped my images out on red and green music paper and cut out my birds and hats. I gave each bird a hat with the opposite colour to their body, just for fun. And perhaps a little contrast.
For the background, I cut out some gold patterned paper using MTF stitched dies, which I glued on top of red cardstock, and then added my birds to it. Lastly, I stamped out the greeting, cut it with a circle die, then ran the edge along my Delicata gold ink pad. I used dimensionals to adhere it to the card.
That’s it. The hardest part about this card was cutting out the birds and hats!
