Snowflake Bird
by Penny Ward



Hi Memory Box friends. Penny here today with yet another unusual color combo for a Holiday card. Who said they all have to be Red & Green ?!?

Are you ready to try a card that is full of texture?

Let's do this:


On a White cardstock base, stencil the background with Scattered Flakes and some Whipped Spackle. Flick a little Red paint on the bottom right corner and top left. Let dry.




Cut a wide strip of Dark Teal cardstock, stamp and heat emboss greeting from the Delightful Ornament stamp set, notch ends and adhere to card front.

Die cut the large and small dies from the Grosgrain Ribbons using a Light Teal cardstock. Adhere into place on card front as shown.




Die cut a large Stitched Oval Layers from Red cardstock. Die cut Snowflake Bird from White cardstock and adhere on top.

Loop about 10 inches of Red Burlap String beneath the Stitched Oval Layers panel and adhere all to card front.

Add Glossy White Crystal Drops as desired. (I limited myself to just the snowflakes on the bird...I can get carried away with that stuff).


Happy Holiday Crafting,




I love the snowflake bird on the red. Yes, unusual color combo but it is beautiful with all the different elements you included. Very pretty.

Very pretty card, Penny! The snowflake bird is so delicate looking. Could see many uses for it. Will have to be added to my wish list:)

This is BEAUTIFUL Penny! Great job!

I love the different color combo & the new bird die! Awesome card!

I love your take on this die and the colors you came up with. Very, very nice!

Oooo, love the bird die. Great card creation.

Very eyecatching and you can't have too many bird dies.
