Denim Chickadee Christmas

Denim Chickadee cu 04846

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT501) asks us to use denim…paper or real. I searched around and found one lonely piece of denim paper.I wasn’t crazy about the looked a little too gray, so I sponged a little of the denim ink around the edges that show.

The chickadee was stamped w/ the denim & I added just a hint of color then die cut him. The outside circle of the Wisemen Ornament was stamped w/ the London fog ink and die cut then attached to a scallop die cut red circle. The chickadee print paper has the greeting stamped directly on it w/ the fired brick ink and the red layer was die cut w/ the scallop border and attached on top.

I die cut several sizes of the poinsettia out of white, sponged denim & the reverse side of the chickadee print then assembled them together. I’m really loving these poinsettia dies…I have the Spellbinders, too, but these are smaller so they fit perfectly in confined areas. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
