The Bundled Bird - on a slightly warmer day - wears just a scarf here on a collaged background of Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder offcuts.  Felt, plaids, snowflakes, mirror cardstock, gemstones and glitter somehow work together for a winter pastel scene.  Hi, Jean here with more ways to mix and match designs from our Christmas 2023 Collection.

Yes, offcuts from the versatile die that's included in the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder Set are featured again!  The new Poinsettia Garland and Poinsettia Plaid 6x6 prints are used here.  Diecut pale aqua cardstock for the greeting block with the larger of the two almost-square blocks.  Stamp the greeting - from the new Shining Star Clear Stamps - on the aqua block with Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to aqua wool-blend felt.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Cut Bundled Bird's main section and head-top.  Cut the backing piece for the beak from a 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection.  Color the eye area with a black marker.

Cut the wings and tail from the Rainbow Reflections turquoise 6x6.  Cut two of the scarf pieces with the turquoise Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.

Cut the largest Alpine Snowflake from a white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad 6x6.  Cut another snowflake from white cardstock and layer the diecuts for dimension.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4.5" x 6.25").  Add Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Kept it simple here today - but Bundled Bird comes with a complete winter wardrobe - including a Santa hat - and more scarf layers.  Hope you enjoy mixing and matching the layers, prints, plaids, gemstones, glittered and mirror cardstock for an assortment of holiday designs to delight everyone on your cardlist!

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend!
