Hi everyone! Top of the morning to you! I hope you are having an absolutely wonderful weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #37 – August Anything Christmas Goes! I created a clean and simple card featuring three of the most adorable little birds ever – and they are singing Christmas carols! These are older Lawn Fawn stamps and dies, and I just love them!
I created a standard A2 size top-fold card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the lower right corner. I stamped the birds, leaves and musical notes in black ink on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers, stamped the branch in brown ink, and cut them all with the coordinating dies. I adhered the branch and musical notes directly to the card base and popped the birds up on small dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in black ink just beneath the branch and added a single iridescent gemstone for a little interest.
I stamped the inside sentiment (from a Stampingbella gnome sentiments stamp set of all things, lol!) in black ink and added a strip of light teal cardstock down the left side for a little interest.
And one more look… I’m so smitten with these little birds I can’t stand it! And I’m loving CAS more and more every day!
