I love the bird stamps by Bianca Petroschi that are available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This is a Titmouse on a branch of winter berries, which is perfect for a Christmas card.
The bird was stamped using gray ink on Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with a mixture of watercolor pencils and Copic markers. A detailed fine point black marker was used to go in and add detail. The stamped image was cut out. For dimension, I added Faber Castell Whipped Spackle to the snow, which is in the stamped image, then sprinkled it with diamond glitter. The berries were also glittered.
Before attaching the bird to the card, I scored around the edges of the front of the card, then sponged on Tea Dye Distress Ink behind where the bird would be placed. A few of Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs were added behind the bird, then it was attached with dimensional glue dots.
The beautiful sentiment is one of the Quietfire "A Way With Words" sentiments. It was die cut using glitter card stock. To complete the card, a strip of Elizabeth Craft Line Peel Off Stickers was attached at the bottom and two corner Peel Off Stickers added at the top.
