Chickadees & Holly

I really enjoyed making this card with the pretty chickadees surrounded by holly and snow.

My friend Sue purchased the oval Nestabilities for me and already I'm in love with them! I definitely plan to purchase the entire set.

For this card, I first attached an elegant glittery holly vellum to a piece of swirled glossy paper with spray adhesive. I then put that piece through the Cuttlebug with the largest oval die to cut out the center. I put that piece aside for a later card. The chickadees are a Christmas tag from Carol Wilson Fine Arts Stationary that I got at a local quilt shop. I put the tag through the Cuttlebug with the next smallest oval die.

Using the Swiss dot folder, I embossed the front flap of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 swirly glossy cardstock. I mounted my vellum frame with pop up squares, then adhered the chickadees inside the frame.

Again, with the Cuttlebug, I cut snowflakes from the "Snowflake" die and attached them to the card, with tiny red pearls for added color. I finished the card with a pretty red organza and gold ribbon.
