Hello! I am sharing a Christmas card that I made using a non-Christmas stamp set. I love this bird, although I do not know which species it is supposed to be. It looks so fluffed up, like the birds at my feeders look in winter, trying to stay warm.
I first stamped the bird and branch in brown in and colored it with pencils. I was thinking of a House Finch when I was coloring this bird, as it is a frequent visitor to my feeders. I die cut the branch and fussy cut the bird. I decided to add Christmas colors using scraps of cardstock in my layout and then perched the bird on the branch. I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops just for a touch of sparkle.
Supplies: I Brake for Stamps Bird Sheet 141A, Gina K Dark Chocolate ink, Prismacolor pencils, Gina Marie X Stitched Circle dies, cardstock from my stash, Sizzix Poinsettia Embossing Folder, Nuvo Crystal Drops Blizzard
