Birds on a Wire
http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au. I used plain white cardstock for the base and also the topper, which I dry embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder "Polka Dots", I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Tool, and shaded the edges with Memento Ink Pad, "Cottage Ivy", I used a Movers and Shapers cutting die "Mini Pine Tree and Holly Set" also by Tim Holtz, for the holly leaves and used a generic office punch with red card stock for the berries, and I used a Sizzex 12" cutting die "Birds on a Wire" I really like these little birds as they seem to have a lot of movement in them. I shaded them with Bahama Blue and Dandelion, both of these inks are also Memento ink pads and used a branch with leaves that was a gift from a friend, I don't know which company made this die. I used a piece of scrap paper on the lower section of the card which was a piece out of my scrap basket and put a piece of red and green ribbon stuck down with double sided tape and rounded the corners with a corner punch, I do like this card and hope you do too,, Thanks for visiting!!
