Look who found some mistletoe! It’s the sweet, stylized bird from the Bird & Blooms die set.
It’s easy to turn him into a cardinal by using Cherry Cobbler cardstock for cutting. He is perched on his birdhouse, which is a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.
The birdhouse is raised on Foam Adhesive Strips, and attached to a Crumb Cake card base. I layered the birdhouse for thickness before attaching, and cut a hole with a Layering Ovals die.
The mistletoe is Old Olive cardstock and Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut with a die from the In The Woods die set. The Cherry Cobbler cardstock berries are punched with a Hand-held Punch that is on the Clearance Rack. The mistletoe is tied with Linen Thread.
“Merry Christmas” is from the Star of Light stamp set. It fits the Bunch of Banners die perfectly, and is one of my favorite Christmas sentiments. I stamped it using Cherry Cobbler ink.
My inspiration for today’s project was this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.
Thank you for stopping by today. May we all find mistletoe this season!
Your cards always make me smile! You are a true artist!!!
Very nice, love how you stepped outside the “usual” box with your use of papers & love the red bird!
This is really cute, Su! I love the woodgrain background…it almost looks like a bird house!
Thank you LeAnne! You’re right! I’m going to edit it, and make the tree a birdhouse!
