I almost didn't make this months cards but I got them in under the wire!!!
I have decided that this year I was going to try to do my Christmas cards through out the year. I sent a lot less cards than I wanted to because I waited till the last minute and just couldn't make enough cards. For 2017 I am going to be doing a set of Christmas Cards on the last weekend of each month. . .
For my February card I used Your Next Stamp set Word Critters Winter Birds.
My card has three pieces on the front so I started by die cutting those out. The square zigzag panel and the stitched rectangle die are both form Lawn Fawn and the Circle is Sizzix. The square zigzag I cut from the same color as the card base so I used some black distress ink around the edges so it would pop off the background. The stitched rectangle die I cut from LF patterned paper and the circle I die cut from watercolor paper.
I stamped the bird on the watercolor circle and used my Zig markers and a water brush to fill him in. I also used Wink of Stella glitter pens on the hat scarf and ornaments for a little sparkle. I attached them all together and then used some foam tape to adhere the set to my card front.
I then took two different words from the stamps set and put them together to make this sentiment. I added a few of Your Next Stamps glittered enamel dots to finish off the card.
I really like how this card turned out, totally not holiday colors but definitely festive!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
