I always turn to Pintrest for this kind of challenge and look for something to adapt and this time I found an idea for this little chap
I would love to see a real one, where do they live? I'm guessing in the USA since they are often on holiday cards from the States. He was made using a couple of circle die cuts, a scalloped circle and a couple of offcuts made into triangles. I am very happy that sticking him together means that I can enter this weeks challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge, it's a fun challenge blog with lots of prizes for those of us who love to create for Christmas all year round.
The background for my bird www stamped with snowflakes using the resist technique and the branch is, of course, Ornamental Pine, stamped in Mossy Meadow. I added the little ornament hanging in his beak thanks to some bakers' twine. It is stamped and embossed in silver, on red card to match the bird.
Here you can see dimensional elements on the card. The red card is also slightly textured.
An oldie sentiment stamped in the corner. The ladies on the DT at 52 CCT have some fab ideas for this challenge, all different so hop on over and have a look.
