A Christmas Robin

Hello again, today i am sharing another card which we made at my Christmas Card Club this month. I love the Bird builder punch and used it consistently for my festive cards over the years. And with only a bit of ink it can be transformed into the most realistic robin look a like. Ok, ok maybe that is pushing it a bit but he doesn’t look a million miles apart from the real thing :)

Stampin'Up! Builder Bird Punch_

The colour combination is Early Espresso, Pool party and cherry cobbler. The embossing folder is called Vintage Wallpaper and the aperture was simply punched out with the 2 1/2” circle punch.

Here’s a little close up for you

The little flowers were punched out spare cherry cobbler card and embellished with tiny pearls.

A little strip of glimmer paper is all you need to give this card a bit of glamour For the robin I punched the bird in crumb cake then inked the belly part using tangerine tango in and the top using early espresso add a wing and a pearl for the eye and voila your red breast robin is ready before you know it !!!

Hope you enjoyed my post today thank you for stopping by. Hugs xx
