Winter peace



Working on my Christmas cards - I have to make about 60 or so this year, using a variety of designs, so I try to do something every day. I love a winter's day when it's softly snowing, and the cardinals around our feeder are such a brilliant red. The bird image here is digital - from HERO ARTS SKYLAND BIRDS, which you can find at Two Peas.
I enlarged the image, changed the color to all black, and printed it out on red paper, then cut out the birds. The Big Pine Bough, the snowflakes, and the sentiment are all Hero Arts stamps. I punched out 2 snowflakes and glittered them as a final addition. The pine boughs are also glittered. If you click on my card, the glitter shows up better in the closeup.

  3. This reminds of a card you made last year using old Christmas cards, you added little red birds. I thought that was the most charming and clever thing I'd ever seen. This card has the same charm and warmth, I love it!
