Christmas at Home
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7530-wm

Hello Friends!

This year, spending Christmas at home has a whole new meaning. For far too many of us, not being able to travel long distances this year means many folks will be spending the holidays alone, or with a ZOOM call after dinner. I would love to encourage you all to think about your friends and neighbors  who might be all alone for the holidays, and how you might brighten their day. This sweet little cardinal knows that Santa will find him wherever he goes, so he's hanging up his Christmas stocking. He knows Santa will bring him something sweet.

I made this card with the new Bird House Pop Up Easel Set! This set is so adorable, and so easy to use, it is no surprise that all of here at Poppystamps want to try it out! The best part is, you can find so many ideas and inspiration for this versatile card.

I started out by cutting out all the pieces I'lll need to assemble the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set. You can make this card as a stand-up easel, or just use the birdhouse on a flat card. I did my house in white, with grey trim and a little snow on the roof. I cut the Berry Branch in green leaves with white berries.

I cut the Whittle Stocking in red and white. Our little cardinal was right! Santa filled his stocking with a sweet surprise! The tiny candy canes and bow were added with a tiny sticker from a holiday sticker set.

I am going to leave this card in my neighbor's door. Then I'll make some more!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Christmas Bird House Easel Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0015

Hello and here we go folks, Christmas is right around the corner! Are your cards ready? No pressure, but if I could offer a rather simple suggestion, a die cut card that really packs a wow, read on...

DSC_0001_wm

The Bird House card is a complete die set ready to purchase in the shop, and between you and me, if you like bold and beautiful, and fun to do, this set is for you. 

DSC_0005

The large main die needs to be cut twice, and then glued only on the flaps, as pictured below.

This is your base. The rest of the bird house elements are included in the set.

DSC_0002

This is a versatile set, and can be adapted for any time of year. The cardinal and fir dies are included to make a Christmas card. You'll notice I cut the bird twice, and fussy cut out the black eye area and beak. These I colored with copics. The fir needles were cut from white cardstock and sponge inked before adding German Glass Glitter. These will form a wreath the bird will nest in.

Simple details make this Christmas card pop! Like the snow on the top of the roof, and dripping underneath the wreath.

DSC_0022

The easel rests or catches on a Merry Christmas die cut that fit perfectly on the bottom. LOVE it when that happens!

DSC_0018

I did a little stenciling around the inside sentiment. there's also a matching envelope I created with stencils. The stencils are easy, just die cut what you want to stencil from vellum, and use the negative space to stencil with. 

Hope you're inspired to try one of the new pop up easel die sets available in the shop. Have a wonderful week!

I cut a few of the birdhouses out of fabric to appliqué on a quilt . I didn't  use it on this card today but I wanted to show you just how nicely these dies cut fabric. I just added my metal shim for a clean cut.

To make the extra trim on the lower edge of the birdhouse I cut it out twice , just turned the die around to cut again, as pictured above.

I used some of the beautiful, 6 x 6 patterned paper packs from : memory box . All the paper is linked below in the supply list.
