So, I completely went off track from my recent s'mores themed cards. I didn't even keep it summer themed, or even warm weather themed. Instead I made a Christmas card.
This guys is a shaped card using a cut from "3 Birds on Parade." The image is on page 42 of the handbook. I cut the shadow feature at 5 1/4" twice. Then I glued the top 3/4" together to create my card base. All the layers were also cut at 5 1/4." I didn't use the piece of the bird that cut the eyes since I wanted to use Peachy Keen stamps for the eyes. I covered the beak in yellow glitter, then covered all that with glossy accents. The pom pom on the hat is covered with a dark green flocking powder. I adhered the beak with a pop dot at the bottom of it and glue at the top for a little dimension. The legs are covered in crackle accents for a little texture. I also did a little doodling around the edges with a white gel pen.
The eyes for the bird are from Peachy Keen. I used the largest set from the In the Garden Face Assortment. I then used a white gel pen to accent the eyes and covered them in glossy accents. The sentiments are from My Pink Stamper.
I used the current color challenge at Christmas Card Challenges as a jumping off point. I used the reds and blues, but added in green as well.
