Christmas Bird

I decided to use a bird from one of my Stampin' Up sets to create a Christmas card with some pretty papers from My Mind's Eye, "12 Days of Christmas".


I just love those pretty papers!  The card is pretty straight forward.

I created the centre panel by first die cutting a scalloped circle from a Spellbinders die and stamping it with some snowflakes and then spritzing with Perfect Pearls Mist.  On top of that I popped up the birdie which was stamped and embossed on red cardstock.

I then layered an oval die cut frame on top of that with some dimensional quares.

Thank you for looking!
