I am having so much fum making Christmas and Winter cards right now. I think I'm going to have a really hard time when this card making season is over, which will be very soon. I guess I need to switch to snowmen then since I really have a passion for them.
This card was made for the Top Tip Challenge Blog where Fred She Said is the sponsor this week. The theme over there is Christmas. So, why not play along and you could possibly win a $20 voucher to purchase some FABULOUS images.
Anyway, this card was inspired by a sketch from Priscilla's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog.
I used a newly released Image from Fred She Said, called English Robins. This is one of three in the Christmas Birds Series. This comes in Digi format fopr those of you that love to color or pre colored for those of you that hate it. I love them both. I enjoy coloring since I discovered Copic Markers. But I love the ease of just printing out the image too.
I printed the image three times, cut out everything on one and just the holly on another. Then mounted everything with foam tape for dimension.
The background was made using a new Holly Cuttlebug Folder. I love using glitter on my cards at Christmas but I chose not to add glitter to this one because I thought it would take away from the beauty of the card.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
