Happy Monday! We made it through the weekend….brrrr, it’s sure cold here in PA! Let’s warm up by thinking Christmas!!! It’s time for another Merry Monday challenge, and this week’s is a theme!
Oooh, I LOVE birds, and this challenge fit perfectly with the Jingle Belles challenge this week, too, which is Scandinavian Christmas:
Squeal!!! Love it! So here we go:
Looks a bit like a Valentine’s card, doesn’t it? But the image is from a retired winter mini hostess set called Northern Hearts; I added a little “joy” at the bottom and “noel” just to make sure everyone knows it’s NOT a Valentine’s, LOL! The gingham is computer-generated; the embossed panel is SU’s Delicate Designs; the felt hearts are cut from a die, and the stitched ribbon is from SU as well. Such a clean, crisp feel, I love it! Of course, I added some pearls for fun:
And since I love birds so much, I made another card using the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:
This one uses a beautiful embossing folder (thanks, Carol!) and a bird sticker:
I even used some of the packaging to make the little background piece!!
I hope you’ll play along with us this week at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, where you’ll find the other beautiful bird-themed Christmas cards from our designers! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
