Heartfelt Creations - Sweet Christmas Birdies

 Hi and welcome!

My Christmas card today has a pretty decorative edge and sweet little birdies. 

Instructions: Card size is 7 x 5”. Score and fold 7 x 10” white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create card base. Using the Filigree Accents Die, cut the bottom edge of the card front. Using the same die, cut again from 7 x 5” Luxe Gold cardstock. Adhere the gold behind the white slightly offset to create a golden shadow. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 7 x 2 7/8” and white cardstock 7 7/8 x 2 3/4”. Dry emboss the white using any embossing folder and adhere to the gold. Then adhere to the card front as shown. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 7 x 4 7/8” and 7 x 2 7/8” and cut sheet 9B 6 7/8 x 4 3/4 and 6 7/8 x 2 3/4”. Adhere the designer paper to the Luxe Gold pieces and adhere to the inside of the card. Cut white cardstock 6 3/4 x 2 5/8”, stamp the sentiment ‘Wishing You A Wonderful Christmas” from the Christmas Lantern Cling Stamp set using Real Red ink, use a corner snowflake punch to create the decorative corners and adhere to the inside of the card.

Stamp the images from the Festive Berry & Birdies Cling Stamp set on watercolor paper using Archival Olive ink and color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers – Blue Gray, Warm Gray 2, Carmine Red, Light Green and Pale Green. Stamp the image with the three birdies a second time using Archival Jet Black ink and color just the birds with the Zig markers on this one. Diecut the images a second time from white cardstock and adhere to the stamped images using dries clear adhesive. Diecut the three colored birdies, cut two more times from white cardstock, adhere together and adhere to the full diecut image. Lightly shape, spray with Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle and adhere Minnie Pearl prills to the image with the single bird. When dry, adhere to the card front using dimension squares and hot glue.

Stamp the poinsettias and holly leaves from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling Stamp set on Real Red and Garden Green cardstock using Real Red and Garden Green ink, diecut using the coordinating dies and shape using the coordinating mold. Using a stylus from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, cup the centers and adhere two flowers together and one holly using dries clear adhesive to create the poinsettias. Using a paint brush, add diluted dries clear adhesive to the flowers and leaves and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Add Heart of Gold Prills to the flower centers and adhere the flowers to the card front as shown using hot glue.
