Songbirds at Christmas

Hi Pinkfresh Studio friends

I really enjoyed sharing a card last time using non seasonal products with seasonal ones, and judging by the feedback, you did too. So, in that same vain I am sharing a card design using the Songbirds on Branches Hot Foil. Though, if you do not have a hot foil machine you can get the Songbirds on Branches Cling Stamp which you could heat emboss instead.

This set is one of my all time favourites released by Pinkfresh Studio. It's so elegant and can be used for any occasion. The co-ordinating stencils make colouring the images such a breeze.

I imagined the bird and branches hanging off a Christmas bauble and thought it would make the perfect seasonal design.

To begin I hot foiled in Champagne. I then used the coordinating stencils to colour the images with some of the new inks. Sage, Lush Forest, Peony & Mulberry Blush.

The background felt a little bland so I die cut the new Snowflakes Cover Die then cut the die cut in half, corner to corner.

I hot foiled one of the Nested Circles Hot Foil and popped this up on foam dots. After die cutting the coloured images I chose just one of the birds with some of the branches and arranged them over the bauble.

I wanted the bauble to look as though it was hanging so I die cut the bow and ribbon from the Wrap Around Elements in Champagne cardstock.

To finish, I pulled out some Ruby Glitter Drops and placed them around the branches in three's which, I think finished this seasonal card off perfectly.

Gosh, I love how this turned out! Great job Cheryl!

I have made a reel that you can find over on Instagram @pinkfreshstudio so keep an eye out for it if you want to watch this card come together. I also share reels @cherylespiecreates if you want more inspration from me.

Until next time friends....
