a Krafty Christmas

Over at The Card Concept, their current challenge is this photo inspiration:


Here's my entry, in the Clean and Layered category:

Krafty Christmas

I was looking through my Christmas paper pads and had forgotten about this Martha Stewart one from last year, which had these darling bird houses on one of the papers, with little touches of red glitter and lots of cardinals.  So I fussy-cut some of them out, and added them to a kraft background stamped in Avery Elle's birches from Let it Snow.  I tore a bank of snow and stamped it with Hero Arts Miracle of the Holidays in their Red Royal ink.  

Thanks for visiting!

  2. How adorable, Lin! I love how you've strung the string straight through the card to make it more incorporated into the design. You always have the best ideas.

  3. That's so adorable. I love the colors and patterns on those little birdhouses. I like that you use stamps from previous years, too. It helps tame my gotta-have-all-the-new-things addiction.
