Sparkles Christmas - Kraft

Hi everyone! Christmas in July is over but if you haven't gotten all of your Christmas cards finished how about joining us at Sparkles Christmas for a Krafty challenge.

That little singing bird just makes me happy :) I started my card with a top folding A2 Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I stamped my wreath and added some highlights with a white pencil. Then I stamped the little bird on white cardstock and colored him with copics, which I fussy cut out. Before I added the birdie to the card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment below the wreath. Once that was done, I adhered the bird to the wreath, stamped a few music notes over him and to add a little sparkle, I used a few Christmas colored sequins.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Layered wreath; Honey Bee - Let it Snow
Inks: Distress Oxide - Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Candied Apple, Gathered Twigs ;
Copics -  Y11, Y13, Y35
Embellishments: Pretty Pink Posh - Classic Christmas 4mm 


  1. This is so pretty. I have never seen musical notes so small and they are so perfect for the size of the wee bird. What a perfect match.

    i really like the way you photographed your card with bits of the stamp and items used showing. I may copy you if you don't mind, as this is such a lovely look.
