Add a diecut snowflake wing to one of the Feathered Friends for a holiday design to match the delicate Batavia Snowflake Channel.  The matchup of soft peach, crisp white and gray creates a fresh look for Christmas - and a few gem stickers add a bit of bling.

Hi, Jean  Okimoto here, sharing another Feathered Friends Deep Edge die design.  The birds and owl will be great throughout the year - in fabric, felt, wood veneer, silkscreened prints...even recycled La Croix cans!

Cut the bird from pale peach cardstock and gray printed paper.  Cut the eyes and beak from orange cardstock. Color the eye circle with a black Sharpie.  

Cut Starlight Snowflake Collage from white cardstock, then cut it with the Feathered Friends wing die.

Assemble the bird - offset the gray layer  for dimension, and to add a pretty peach outline along one side.  

Cut Batavia Snowflake Channel from white cardstock.  Trim it with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics Die.  Attach it to a top-folded gray A-2 card with a tape runner or double-stick tape.  Here's an optional step -  I like to protect the card with printer paper and run the open card through my Spellbinders Platinum machine to seal the edges where the card meets the Batavia Snowflake panel.  This creates nice, neat edges and seals any gaps.  Details, details!

Attach the bird with foamdots.  Add silver and dark peach gem stickers.  Color clear gem stickers with a marker if you don't have matching gem stickers.

Imagine the same basic design with a column of hearts in February - or a leafy border in the spring.  Use a floral border in the summer and autumn leaves in the fall.  These birds will be busy!

Big thanks to everyone from last week's ASIAN INSPIRATION class at Impress!   Who would have guessed that so many Memory Box and Poppystamps designs could be used to diecut those beautiful silkscreened papers and Asian icons.  Thanks too - Ann, Erin and Lauren - for gathering those dies and papers for everyone.

If you're in the Seattle area, join us for my last class of 2017 - WINTER BLISS - on December 16th.  Make 6 un-holiday cards  - including a low-profile (OK...flat) shaker card using Memory Box products to create custom-sized shaker packets for glitter and diecut bits and pieces.  We're using the Feathered Friends dies too - Impress just received another shipment of them.

Thanks for visiting - see you again next week!
