Now, for today’s Christmas card. The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with wood textured, In Good Taste Designer Paper. I cut the circular, leafy hole with a Birds & More Die. This is a wonderful die set that comes in a bundle with the Birds & Branches Stamp Set.

Christmas Bird



Next, I stamped the sweet  bird in Cherry Cobbler Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used her Birds & More Die for cutting. Do you see her little feet? I stamped them in Early Espresso Ink, cut with their die, and glued them in place.


The sentiment, “believe” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. I “tied” it to the top of the circle with a bow created with Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper, and a Wreath Builders Die. I just love this paper bow!


I can’t “believe” I forgot to put the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper in my Product List. Here it is, and you can click on it for details.
