by Sara Cook

Hi everyone. I have another holiday card featuring the Bundled Bird layered die set.

Bird:

Die cut the bird from heavy weight cream card stock.  Ink blend the different layers with Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso Distress ink.  Use Ripe Persimmon for the beak.  Follow the image on the packaging for ink blending and adhering the bird layers together.  I did add some foam tape under the tops of the wings. Die cut the hat and scarf from red and white stock. Ink blend the bottom die cut for the fur with Fresh Ink Silicone Blue.  Ink blend the bottom sections of the hat and scarf with  Lumberjack Plaid Distress ink.  Adhere together using the packaging as a guide.

Nest:

Die cut the nest from heavy weight cream card stock.  Ink blend the different layers with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. Follow the image on the packaging for ink blending and adhering the bird layers together.  tip do NOT glue the front part of the nest so you can tuck in the bird when assembling.

Branch:

Die cut the Forest Pine Branch from the same cream card stock. Ink blend the pine needles with Rustic Wilderness Distress ink.  Use a dark brown watercolor marker to color in the branch. I did die cut another branch from dark brown card stock and adhered it to the back.  

Sentiment:

Die cut Best Wishes Tender Script bottom from red card stock and the top with red.  Ink blend the the bottom die cut with Lumberjack Plaid Distress ink.  Adhere the 2 together.  White heat emboss "warm" from warm wishes stamp from the Shining Star stamp set on red card stock ink blend with Lumberjack Plaid Distress ink.  Fussy cut out the sentiment.

Assembly:

Trim down a light red/pink paper from the Poinsettia Plaid paper pad to 4" x 5 1/4".  Adhere to a A2 white card.  Adhere the sentiment to the bottom center, then the branch, nest and bird, inserting into the nest.
