I recently bought a lovely set of stamp and matching dies by Poppy Stamps, which I think is meant to be a Partridge in a Pear Tree. Now, I'm a little ornithologically challenged and wasn't sure what a partridge looks like, so here's a batch of cards I made.....
I coloured some of the birds as Robins, plus a few as Red Cardinals - these are to send to friends and family in the USA as I believe they don't have robins over there (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong !).
I coloured the stamped wreath and bird image using ProMarkers before cutting out using the matching dies. I then cut squares of white card and stamped a large snowflake image in the centre(huge apologies but I can't remember which stamp it was, if I come across it again I'll amend this post with the manufacturer details) and attached the wreath diecut over the top. I then attached these layers over a very slightly larger mat cut from SU! Cherry Cobbler cardstock, to give a thin red line around the image layer.
Finally, I added the sentiment at the bottom using a Clarity stamp and SU! Cherry Cobbler ink. I haven't added any glitter or Stickles to this batch of cards - I know that's unusual for me as I do so love a bit of bling - but I just didn't feel the design needed it. What do you think ? Should I add some bling or not ?
Thanks for dropping by today, great to 'see' you. Have a wonderful day !
