Everything about this card reminds me of Christmas growing up. My Oma would have these beautifully painted wooden Christmas trinkets she brought over from Germany –– and every Christmas they would make their way back into her home bringing Christmas cheer and excitement into the house.
Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.
Step 2: Stamp the sentiment on a kraft card front measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.
Step 3: Using red and yellow cardstock cut out 4 thin strips and adhere these to the top and bottom of your cardfront.
Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to your card front.
Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to kraft card stock and die cut the birds from the Holiday Birdhouse die set.
Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 6: Assemble all the die cut Birdhouse pieces to the center of your card front. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.
Hope you enjoyed this bit of Christmas in July inspiration.
