If you are like me you'll be sending out Christmas cards till the last minute, as you receive them in the mail you realize, oops, forgot to send one to aunt Anita...
Here are a few more ideas for some fairly flat cards to send quick!
I colored my bird with Copics R21, R24, R29, R59 the pine cone and branch with E31, E33, E35, E37 and the greens with YG63, YG67. The sky was sponged with some Blue Sky Brilliance Ink. Then I splattered white acrylic paint onto the image panel with watered down paint and a toothbrush.
The image panel was cut with a Pierced Rectangle die and a bit of Out of the Box cutting around the birds head and the green pine needles. The pine cone tips have a bit of Liquid Applique puffed up with heat for snow build up.
What is more peaceful than watching birds so I decided to use the All is Calm sentiment with this pretty cardinal.
I made it an easel card.
My green background is embossed on the front and I used a large Merry Christmas die over it in white.
The inside sentiment panel is popped up to act as a catch, to hold the card open for display.
I die cut some small (Spellbinders) poinsettias and shaped them then glued some Prills (US Artquest) in the centers of the flowers.
The Poinsettia is colored similar to the cardinal only I used a bit of G40 for close to the centers.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting lots of ideas for Christmas.
Go and be crafty!
