Birdy Christmas !

Hi! I know it's only November but since the adverts are all 'Christmas-ified' and the Christmas films are on, I thought you might forgive me for starting off with a simple card that could easily be a winter Birthday card too.
I'm using some Lia Griffith sets; Build A Wreath

 and the Stamp/Die set 'Joyful Tidings'
Rather than create ornaments, I wanted to make a simple card. It's mini sized to make more of a feature with the ornament shape.
These would also make great table cards for all that entertaining you might end up doing!

I wanted to use this 'Make A Wreath' set but not as a wreath. This is an incredibly cute set and if you don't mind a bit of fussy cutting, it's easy to create something 3D. I've added some graduated colour using a Distress ink colour and then some white and black pen details.

I've already used this set in alternative colours as tags for a previous MTDSS challenge
I added this 'Elves By Lia' set too
Hope you get some ideas of how to use these lovely stamps/dies. It would also be great to stick them together after you've folded several in half and then adhere them together to create a 3D ornament.
See you next week,
