These little birds are enjoying the Christmas season. Today I used the Joset Designs Birds die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create this cute Christmas card.
This is a 6x6 inch card. For the background, use a piece of the Els van de Burgt Studio, Through The Lens Wood Series Card Stock.
Die cut two small Entwined Ovals and attach them toward the top, centered, as shown. Die Cut a variety of evergreen branches. I used Els van de Burgt Studio Sprig with Berries and the Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die sets. The branches were arranged at the bottom of the Entwined Oval.
Die cut the two Birds, using the Joset Designs Birds die set. Sponge on color on the upper body and the wings. Attach the wings and add a black Prill to the eye.
Use the Joset Designs Winter Sentiments stamp set to stamp Joy in the center of the Entwined Oval. Use black ink to stamp, then brush glue on the inside of the word and sprinkle on Gold Glitter. Add a Gold Christmas Peel Off Sticker above the stamped JOY.
Attach the birds with dimensional tape so they are below the stamped sentiment.
Make a gold bow using very fine cording, and attach under the birds. Add Gold Peel Off Sticker Stars to the branches and around the sentiment. Use the Els van de Burgt Studio Corners 1 die set to die cut four corners, using brown card stock, and attach to the card. Use the Joset Design Sled die set to create a tiny poinsettia for the top of the Entwined Circle. Add Prills to the center of the flower.
This card will fit into a regular 6x6 envelope.
