Hello Peeps, popping back in today with another card.
This card uses the Merry Monday sketch challenge. I have been wanting to play along with Lesley's new challenges since they begun and never seem to work them in. Well this week my sweet friend Wendy is the guest designer, so I just HAD to find time to make a card.
Here is the sketch:
I am such a seasonal stamper, that I had a hard time thinking about doing a Christmas card, but while looking through my Christmas stamps for some inspiration and nothing striking my fancy, I sit back down at my desk and my bird punch was there, ( you will see why later in the week) and I thought I could make a cardinal, that works for Christmas and so this card was born! :)
I made the birdhouse by cutting a crumb cake circle and trimming off the bottom and the top was cut at an angle for the roof. I used early espresso for the roof and the circle opening. I then punched alot of leaves using some old olive and always artichoke to build the nest the bird is on. I added some small red "berries" to the leaves
The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set.
I think the rest is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions just let me know.
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
