Christmas Bird

Hi Everyone,
I know you are all probably sick and tired of Christmas cards after the last month, however, I have decided that I need to make at least one a month to avoid the end of year rush!


This little card was very simple to make. The paper is from Kaiser, the background is a Spellbinder Labels Two die cut from the centre of the paper revealing the card underneath. (I used the die cut on something else).

There are 3 different SU punches – Bird punch, oval & scallop oval punch. The sentiment is a small Seasons Greetings from one of the $2 shop sets that I picked up and a bit of twine is wrapped around behind it.

Oh and a little pearl for the birds eye and there you have it!
 really like the colours and the fact that the image is not too “christmassy”.

Ciao for now…

YOu are so right Vicki-- this year I ended up sending Xmas cards in the new year!


Hi Vicki, it's why I decided to joing the 52 {Christmas} Cards Throwdown Challenge! I was quite good this Xmas as I made cards every month and that mean't that there wasn't so much madness at Xmas!
I love the way you've used the SU bird punch for a Xmas card - I'm going to have to buy that! hugs Karen x
