Come Sail Away Christmas Card

Birds of a Feather Christmas Card.

I have such a cute card for you today.  When I saw the Birds of a Feather stamp set in the Holiday catalog, I knew it would be mine.  I don't even know why I like it so much, but I do!

Birds of a Feather for Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

Isn't it cute!  Start with a card base of Coastal Cabana 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Using the snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set, stamp snowflakes in the upper right and the lower left corners of the base in Coastal Cabana.

The Real Red layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. 

The Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the snowflakes on this layer, too.  Start at the top right and work your way down again to the lower left.  Some are stamped full strength and some are stamped off.  Use Coastal Cabana ink.

Add a strip of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper that is 3/4 x 4 3/4.  This is just below the center of the paper.

Stamp the saying in the lower right in Real Red.

Stamp the Christmas bird on a piece of Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  Color with dimensionals.  I used the Light and Dark Pool Party, Dark So Saffron, Light Pumpkin Pie, and Light and Dark Real Red blends.  Add the Light Pool Party ink around the bird too.  This helps everything stand out a little better, especially the white on the hat.  Cut this with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop square from Real Red using the Layering Squares dies.  Layer these together and add to the card with dimensionals.

Birds of a Feather For Christmas Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Snowman Season stamp set.  It's stamped in Real Red.  Add another bird colored with the same blend colors.

If you haven't tried out blends, you just might want to give them a try.  They are so much fun!
