- A6 white card blank
- a layer of white sparkly card (which was in the snippets folder), to completely cover the card front, glued in place. It matches the sparkly edging which was already around the image when I removed it from the card ready to up cycle
- next a slightly smaller layer of patterned paper from Wild Rose Studio's 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper pack, glued in place
- to make the sparkly edged image 'pop' a bit more I found a snippet of red silk mirri card and used part of it to 'frame the image before gluing it in place on the card front
- final touch, using the Misti I added the sentiment using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from the Paper Smooches 'Christmas Sampler' set
So happy I rescued this darling little bird, BTW the image is slightly fuzzy so it's not my photography! And, it already came with the lovely little shiny red berries sort of debossed and foiled - another reason I framed the image in the matching red silk mirri card.
I chose the sentiment 'Holiday cheer' as it's not really one we use in the UK. We refer to Christmas and New Year as just that - but I suspect this little chap will be winging his way over the Atlantic in December to wish someone Holiday Cheer anyhow! :)
