Heat Embossed Red Bird Christmas Card
Hello everyone! Remember last month when I went to Scrapbook Creations in Spartanburg, SC for the weekend? Remember I told you that I made a ton of Christmas cards that weekend? Yes, well... this is another of those cards!
I used my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge and cut the double shaped tag for the front of this card. I then used the stamps and die cuts provided by Scrapbook Creations to cut the bird and stamp the different elements of this card.
The bird die cut was a two layer cut - the bird body and a wing. The bird parts were stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder. The stamps were made to go with the die cuts - you KNOW how I love for my stamps to match my cuts!!! I used pop dots to attach the bird to the matting.
I used green ink to stamp the sentiment and the mistletoe. I used red stickles to add the berries to the mistletoe.
Just to try a different version of the same card, after making two of the white cards I switched things up and made two green base cards.
This card was very easy to make, but one I am not afraid to send out. I have made cards that I never mail because I just do not like them enough - nor do I usually share those with you!!! But this card I truly do like!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with another new project to share.
