Birds of a Feather Christmas Card

Hello to you today!  I have a cute Christmas card using the Birds of a Feather.  Don't you love this stamp set.  It has something for four great holidays:  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day!

Birds of a Feather Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is part of my Christmas Card Class.  Start with a card base of Pool Party that is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over the front of the card with the stars stamp from Birds of a Feather.  Stamp in Pool Party.

The Cherry Cobbler dotted paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The Whisper White strip behind it measures 2 x 5 1/2.  Use the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut the scalloped edges on the white.  Layer the two pieces and adhere to the left of center on the card front.

Birds of a Feather Christmas Close UP by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the bird on Whisper White using Memento ink.  Blends were used to color the bird.  I used Light and Dark Pool Party, Light Cherry Cobbler, and Light Pumpkin Pie.  A few people in class wanted to give the bird a cobbler beak.  I see nothing wrong with that!  Punch this out with the 2" Circle Punch.  Cut a coordinating scallop circle from Pool Party using the Layering Circles Dies.  Layer the two and add to the card with dimensionals.   Add a star from the Star Designer Elements.

The saying is from the Birds of a Feather stamp set.  I only wanted the top two lines of the saying.  I used scotch tape to tape off the bottom line.  Ink the stamp, and then, take off the tape.  That last step is super important!!!  The white strip is 3/4 inches wide.  Notch the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  Use glue where the label overlaps the circles.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is in Cherry Cobbler.  Stamp the bird again and color.  Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend for the star.
