Hello and Happy Tuesday1 I'm pretty excited about this week's Christmas in July theme at Stamp, Ink, Paper! Last year I became sick in December and wasn't able to finish my Christmas Cards so I knew that this theme would get me thinking about them early this year! So now, 1 down, and about 74 more to go! lol
I had a couple of ideas floating around in my brain but here's where they ended up..
I knew I wanted to use the Window Framelit so I decided to use the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and Wonderful Wreath framelits as well. I can tell you that I have still after a year NOT mastered stamping and die cutting that wreath out correctly. I cut leaves off that shouldn't have been cut off, etc. I'm trying to distract you with the Gina Marie bird dies! LOL All that being said.. I still love the card. My hubby and I love birds and especially cardinals so I had to cute the birds out in Red. I know cardinals have black on them too but I really felt like I could be a bit whimsical with this one!
Here's how I finished up the inside..
The sentiments on the inside are also from the Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set. As you can see I had to use two more of the adorable little bird die cuts on the inside!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
