All four images in the set are gorgeous, so I made a set of four cards! I opted to use the pre-coloured images, and I added Frantage embossing powder to each image for a snowy look!
Card 1 - Chickadee
I die-cut the chickadee with a wonky stitched oval and then layered it on a die-cut lacy oval, which is popped up on foam tape. The patterned paper is from BoBunny Woodland Winter Collection. The die-cut bow is Poppystamps Lovely Gift Bow, and I added a blue gem to the center. The sentiment stamp is from Poppystamps You Melt My Heart. I fussy-cut the name of the bird and adhered it to the oval, and then finished off the card by adhering three blue snowflake sequins. My card design was inspired by this sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
Card 2 - Blue Jay
I die-cut the blue jay with a dotted square and layered it on a black square. The die-cut bow is Poppystamps Prim and Proper Bow. The blue panel is embossed with snowflakes and popped up on foam tape, and the white panel is embossed with evergreen boughs. I fussy-cut the name of the bird and adhered to the square. I added a blue gem to the center of the blow and three black gems according to the sketch below. I finished off the card by adhering three blue snowflake sequins. My card design was inspired by this sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
Card 3 - Cardinal
I die-cut the cardinal with a framed square. The patterned paper is from BoBunny Mistletoe Collection, and the green glitter cardstock is from Dollarama. I fussy-cut the name of the bird and adhered it to the square, and added three red gems in the opposite corner. I finished off the card by adhering three green snowflake sequins. My card design was inspired by Sketch Saturday 592 and I chose Sketch 228:
Card 4 - Bird Feeder
I die-cut the image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles - these rectangles are stitched inside and outside the cut line so I used partial die-cutting to achieve the size I wanted. I layered the image onto green cardstock and popped it up with foam tape. The patterned paper is from BoBunny Mistletoe Collection, and the embossing folder is Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball. The pine cone and pine needles are freebies over at the Artsystamper Art Group Facebook Group. I merged the images, fussy-cut, and adhered. I added Stardust Stickles to the snowy roof and edge of the bird feeder. I stamped a sentiment from Your Next Stamp and finished off the card by adhering three green snowflake sequins. My card design was inspired by the sketch over at Creative Sketchy Girls Challenge 42:
