Hope everyone here in the US had a really nice Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving was quiet. Just me, hubby and our boys. We didn't even had turkey. We had a nice roasted chicken! Anyway, with Thanksgiving over it is on to Christmas! And I have two very clean and simple Christmas cards to share.
The first card is for the Paper Players, Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches. The colors at CTD are copper, kraft, sage and black. I just used a little of the copper and black and alot of the kraft and sage. I know my copper doesn't look copper, but it is. The sentiment was hot foiled with Spellbinders copper hot foil. I took a close up that shows a bit better that the foiling is copper. For the bird I blended Bundled Sage distress ink onto white cardstock and then die cut the bird using the Memory Box Serene Bird & Branch die set. The branch was die cut from black and copper glitter cardstock then layered slightly offset. I embossed a piece of PTI rustic white cardstock with the Spellbinders Holly Swirls embossing folder and adhered it to a kraft base. I assembled the bird using thin foam squares to adhere the wing for a little dimension. I die cut the beak from black cardstock, adhered it and then added the eye using black Nuvo drops. I layered up all the elements on the card front and I was done.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
