The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog must be making me think months ahead, because today’s card is birds in a Winter Woodland Scene.

Woodland Birds


I began by fussy cutting the two birds from Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. Then, I used two Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle of dotted Sahara Sand DSP, and a scalloped circle of Champagne Foil. 

This dot is from retired 6X6 DSP, but there are four, new patterns in every Stampin’ Up! color, available now. You can click on the picture in my Product List for details.


Next, I chose a Thick Whisper White card base, topped with Whisper White, embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder. I tied a strand of Linen Thread around it, thinking the birds would like this to build their nest.


The two birds and subtle colors drew me to the sentiment, “I’m here for you,” from Itty Bitty Greetings. The sentiment fit perfectly in the label from the Merry Christmas Die Set, which I balanced on a tree branch.

White sequins were the final touch to add some sparkle.


My layout was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.


Thank you for stopping by! I hope my winter scene is refreshing for those of you who are hot this weekend!
