Hey there! We are changing gears just a little bit today with a Christmas card created with the Birds & Branches Bundle from the Annual Catalog. This set is not designed specifically for Christmas, but the birds lend themselves perfectly to be a winter/Christmas birdie!
Birds & Branches are photopolymer, so they are easy to layer together. I stamped the bird first with stamped-off Soft Suede, then stamped the detail over it with full-strength Soft Suede. I mounted him on a strip of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper and added 1/4" wide strips of gold foil along the top & bottom. This contrasted nicely with the Very Vanilla background I embossed with the Winter Snow embossing folder.
I added a bow tied with Poppy Parade 1/8" ribbon from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack.
I stamped the greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas with Poppy Parade ink, punched the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, and added gold Metallic Pearls.
Inside I stamped the birdie on a branch and another sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas.
