Robins On A Branch Christmas Card

This card measures 6ins x 6ins and is made using a hand cut blank in white linen effect card.
This is the card I came up with using the pack of Paperchase robin stickers (£1) from yesterdays shopping. Sorry the large photo isn’t too brilliant.
I also used my Memory Box Woodland Branch die (MB98187), which just lends itself to so many Christmas cards with different things hanging from it.
98187All I have done is add a tiny sprinkling of Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles, Angel Wishes to the branch and in a swirl round the lone robin at the bottom.  All done in no more five minutes!
I think these little finger print robins are so versatile and have set myself a little sort of challenge to see how many card designs I can come up with using them, so watch this space!
As Marc has a few packs of them too I can’t wait to see what he come up with.

Hi Helen. This is a card that makes you smile when you see it so to me that makes it a real winner. I love it : ) Now I have an idea of how to use some branch dies that I have!
"Break a leg" tonight, I will be thinking of you acting in the store window. I bet the passers by will love it : ) Take care.

Stumbled on your blog whilst bumbling around the internet. Saw this card and absolutely HAD to buy some of these robins. Made my first card with them yesterday. Thanks for your creative inspiration.

Hi Helen, How did you do the background? Mine always seems to be dark .

Thanks for the inspiration that you and the monkeys give me it's priceless

Karen, I am not sure what you mean about the background ...... all I have done is stick the branch and the robins straight onto a white card blank ..... with a little micro glitter here and there.

Ahhh … must be the micro glitter. I thought you had clouds in the background! :)

Thank you
