From Our Family To Yours-Paperie Ink Christmas Carolers

Happy Monday!! My blog has been very slow as of late. Work has been getting in the way of my creating. I have had to take a nap when I get home before I do all the running around with Charlotte too. I will be happy to feel normal again but it sure is taking a long time.

Today I am sharing a card I created for Paperie Ink using the Christmas Carolers stamp and die set. This set is so darn cute!

I started by stamping the birds, their "Christmas" accessories, the nest and the eggs on white card stock and die cut the pieces out. I then colored the images in using Copic markers.

Next I stamped the branch and the log onto kraft card stock. I then ran the card stock through a wood grain embossing folder to give the wood pieces some texture. I cut them out using the matching dies. Using Walnut Stain Distress Ink, I sponged over the wood pieces to give them a bit of dimension.

I assembled all the pieces over a snowy background scene that I had adhered to a red card base. I added clear Wink of Stella to the birds hat and the bow, and added snow to the nest, branch and log. I sprinkled some fine, clear glitter over the snow  before it dried to give it some sparkle.

The last step was to stamp the sentiment in black at the bottom of the card.

I think this card came out so adorable. I cannot wait to send it out!!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!!
