Chilly Bird

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.
