Classy Cards N Such challenge #108 to make a friend card and add a squirrel or a bird.
I started my card with a white card base. I cut another white layer and embossed it using the
Darice Doily Lace embossing folder.
Next I chose two stamps to stamp my sentiment. One of them had My Friend on it and the other one had Merry Christmas. I aligned them on my block and stamped them in Versamark and followed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. This is a great way to stretch your stamps.
I used the Impression Obsession Pine Branch die to cut the white pine branches. I attached them to my card using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.
I used Gold shiny card stock to cut my birds using Bird Song Dies Secret Treasures Collection. I attached the gold birds to the branches, also using the Art Institute Dries Clear adhesive.
My finishing touch to my card was to make a bow with gold ribbon and using the Bow Easy. This is a great tool for me because I cannot tie pretty bows.
I hope you will join us for the challenge this week. Beverly always has a nice prize for the winner.
