Winter Bird
by Sherry Hester

Hi everyone!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far!

Today's card features dies from the Open Studio Gilded Birds set, as well as Who Let the Birds Out, Shimmering Snowflakes and Garland Greenery dies.

Bird Cage Card 1

I dry embossed the front of an A2 size card cut from cream card stock.  I cut a light tan piece of card stock to 5-1/2" x 3-1/4".  I sponged Frayed Burlap Distress Ink through the Stars Shimmer stencil, added small drops of glue to the stars and sprinkled with clear glitter.  From cream card stock, I cut two each of the large and medium snowflakes, and one each of the bird cage, sprigs set and little swing.  I added the swing behind the bird cage top, then rounded the bottom of the bird cage, added foam tape to the bottom center, added glue around the edges and top, and adhered to the tan piece.  I cut the bird from red card stock, added a black dot for the eye, and sponged Frayed Burlap on the right for dimension.  The bird was then added to the swing using a piece of foam tape.

Bird Cage Card 2

For each of the snowflakes, I glued one on top of the other, offsetting them slightly, added pearls to the center, and after "fluffing" them with my fingers, I adhered them with foam tape as shown.  The sprigs were then tucked and glued behind the snowflakes.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and thanks again for stopping by! Sherrysig
