Bird on a Snowy Branch Holiday Card

11_18 008 copy

This would make a nice holiday card; the wintry scene is just so peaceful. I love Branch Out for fall/autumn applications but I wanted to try my hand at using it in a different way.

The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ baja breeze, layered with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ Night of Navy panel. On the front, I stamped a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of baja breeze card stock with the tree from Branch Out in Basic Gray ink. Then, using the “leaves” stamp from the set, and White Craft Ink, I added snow all over the tree and surrounding areas. The bird was stamped in real red ink. To give the snow some more sparkle, I sprinkled Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on the wet craft ink and heat embossed it.

Along the bottom, I tore a strip of Whisper White card stock to create a snowy ground cover. Although not visible in the photo, I used my Glue Pad to add a thin layer of White Flock to the strip of Whisper White to give a fluffy snow effect.

Finally, I tied some Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the bottom and adhered the Night of Navy and Baja Breeze layers to the card base.
