When I received the new blanks and Bezel matching dies from Spellbinders I had to try them out right away. Β I used the Birds one die to cut patterned paper. The edges were sanded before the pieces were adhered to Bird blanks. Β Brown cardstock was cut and embossed with the branch die from Cherry Blossoms.

Corrugated cardboard was cut with the largest of the new Heart One dies. The cardboard was painted with Snow Cap Paint Dabber and then sanded. The heart was adhered to white cardstock and cut out before the branch and birds were adhered in it’s center.

A 1 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Winter Fun patterned paper was adhered to a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ of patterned paper from the same paper pack. Seam binding was tied around the vertical strip and topped with a button, tied on with Linen Thread.

A sentiment from GinaK. Designs Mistletoe Memories was inked with Wheat and Jumbo Java VersaMagic ink on white cardstock and cut out. It was adhered next to the seam binding bow.

The top right and bottom left corner were rounded before Washi tape topped with a button on the top right finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  22. Step 1: Cut the grey cardstock to 8.5Γ—11 inches. Then cut the white cardstock slightly smaller than the grey cardstock. Cut each of the patterned papers 3Γ—8 inches (change length of each if desired).
