Christmas Robins


I coloured several robins yet only made two cards but at least they cute. The first one is using a Marianne die well I think it is but it had to be trimmed to fit my card but I think I managed to centre it OK.

The sentiment, one of my favourites is a wooden Penny Black one but not sure if its still available. The robins are from a Transparent set called Jolly Friends. The wooden panel I'm not sure whose make it is.


Somewhere in my craftroom is my old cuttlebug snow falling embossing folder where it is I've no idea but rather than spend the rest of the day trying to find it, I used the Simon Says Stamps Falling Snow stencil. I even remember the plate sandwich first time.

I also used Simon says Stamp Stitched Circles to help emphasis my robin. The dotty paper is Lawn Fawn Lets Polka in the dark. Even though they are Halloween papers the red and green are suitable for Christmas.

I actually used a sketch for this last card from Splitcoast Stampers SC560.

Both fabulous cards, love them the design on the first and the die cuts on the second.

I may pinch your design Debby for the first one as I have a die that could work like that. Thank you

Di said...

It's Di again! That wood patterned paper on your first card has been bugging me since this morning Debby! A playmate used paper like that in the snippets playground last week and am almost sure it's exactly the same one - Kaisercraft 'Blue Bay'. Gosh it's beautiful - in fact I ran off and ordered some the other day but I think it's walking here!
