Merry Christmas Bird
by Rachel Duong


Hi crafty friends! It's me Rachel, here to share a sweet Christmas card with you. I know it's not quite time for the holidays but it's never too early for getting a head start on the makes! I used the Poppystamps "Nordic Bird" die from the latest Christmas release. If you haven't seen it yet, you have to check it out. I brought out all the shiny, glitter paper together for a festive display, yay!


To create this card, I die cut the bird using the Memory Box "Festive Glitter" shimmering green and "Rainbow Reflections Rainbow Pad" red foil cardstock. Next I die cut the "Snowglobe Bases" in gold foil. I die cut the second largest  "Simple Rings" die In glossy black for the outline and then the globe in silver glitter paper. The "Lavish Merry Christmas" sentiment die was cut in red foil cardstock. The confetti inside the globe is from the "Nordic Floral Plate". I originally die cut it out in four papers for another card idea and these were the pieces not used. I never throw away the unused pieces!


The background is the "Scandinavian Snowflake Plate" die cut out in black. I embossed gold over a piece of black paper to layer under the snowflake cuts. I embossed the gold instead of using a piece of cardstock to keep the card less bulky.


These are most of the supplies I used.


Finally I used the Open Studio "Fairy Jewels" for texture and dimension. 


I hope I captured the spectacular shine and glitter of this card in my pictures. I feel the spirit of Christmas when I look at this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Until next post, enjoy the weather as it changes and may you be inspired for holiday card creations!
