I had lots of fun making this card. The multi-step bird is really easy to stamp (especially if you have a MISTI). Once I finished stamping the various layers I cut it out with the matching die. I did the same for the branch and feet. I cut a large panel of dark teal paper slightly smaller then the card and adhered it to the base. I die cut an oval mat in dark cherry and a smaller one from white card. I adhered the bird to the white oval, added some berries to the branch and attached the finished oval to the card. I finished off with a simple sentiment in bold black. On the inside I cut a mat layer of teal design paper and on the white panel I simply added a Christmas flower.
This week the Merry Monday challenge - MM#219 wants us to use bird(s) on our card, so it was the perfect opportunity to play with this set. I used the bold, rich colours from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#416.
Do visit our blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. This is the last week of our DT Call too - remember you must have done at least 3 of the 5 challenges this month, so if you've only done 2 so far - this is your last chance to complete the third challenge.
We have a less than fun start to the day planned. It's time for us all to have our Flu vaccinations! Hope you all have a super day :)
