Hi there ๐Ÿ™‚ I was wondering what I was going to do for a Christmas card for my kid, then thought of the nickname I’ve had for them since they were a baby… Chickadee <3 So, of course I had to go through my stamps and find the perfect image!! I found this pretty digital image in my Sparkle N’ Sprinkle (sadly, another store that has closed) file, and printed it off right away. After coloring the birds, I added a cloudy background with Distress Inks.

I embossed a piece of white card stock with a swirly patterned folder (couldn’t get the true depth of the embossing to show on my pic) and matted it with green. I cut the front of the card base to fit this piece, leaving the back part of the card a bit bigger. I die cut a leafy border, and placed it on the inside part of the back part, so it also bordered the front. After wrapping some twine around the embossed front piece, and popping on a die cut sentiment, I attached the image. I hope my Chickadee loves the card <3

I’d like to enter this in the following:
