A Snowy, Christmas Robin Pocket Card


I'm breaking out the glitter and going for it. I've discovered a love for Twinklet's Diamond Dust that I didn't know I had. Once I started sprinkling this gorgeous cut glass around, I couldn't stop... and I'm happy with the results.


The base of my card is the B side of Teresa Collins Santa's List "Postcard". It's teamed up with a bit of old Kaisercraft, and a digital image.


The white cloth flowers are Petaloo Botanicas. I cut the holly leaves and pine sprigs with my Alterations Holiday Greens. I think I've used this die set more than any other I've purchased for the last two years. My Distressed Doily is probably a close second, but I've had it longer.


I cut my church scene image and the die cut beneath it with Spellbinder's Scalloped Circles. I layered some cheesecloth in-between and used 3-D foam to pop it up. The Distress Ink on the edges is Walnut Stain. Under that is a double layer of Spellbinder's Floral Oval. There's also a Kaisercraft tag stacked in there.


The sugared red berries are by Petaloo.


The antique bronze filigree corner is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and the eyelets are We R Memory Keepers. The Christmas robin is by Kaisercraft from their St. Nicholas Collectables pack... he's perched on a twig cut with Alterations Mini Holy & Branch set.


The charm on my tag is a Tim Holtz Muse Token.

I've gotten caught up with my book listing on eBay for a few days, so now I can create cards again. So much more fun. Give me a paper trimmer, a bottle of glue and a stack of paper any day... I love it!

Thanks for stopping by... I so appreciate it!

Gorgeous! The pop of red from the bird and berries just shine on your card. I have a big tub of that stuff that I haven't touched in forever. It really is a cool product. Glad you're back to having fun again. Hugs!
