Julie Warner -


On my Christmas card, I die cut the beautiful bird in white and traced around the die on red and fussy cut it to attach behind the white die cut version. The sentiment was stamped on white and I used a bracket border die to cut the bottom. I used another die from the border set to cut the red layer beneath it. A red snowflake and some red and clear crystals were added to finish my 5.50 x 4.25 card.

For my non-Christmas card, I went with a sympathy card. After stamping the sentiment on the lower section, I die cut the dove above it. I used some blue-green Copics to color the die cut bird then used  the ink spots image to add the dots on the bird and also on the light blue layer. The stamped die cut bird was then added back into the empty die cut space. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
