Spirited Birds

Hello everyone. Well are your kiddies back to school this grandson starts nursery & my grand-daughter starts all day.....omgoodness they grow too fast & I will miss seeing her in an afternoon........although she does have to walk past mine to school & back so maybe I can nab them both for tea lol.

Anyhoo lets get on with my card & I've made a christmas card, yes another one....but its hard not to when Tracy stocks lush papers & fabulous Christmas dies.....not to mention all the other yummy scrummy stuff ;-)
I have used the lushious Pion Greetings From The North Pole papers & inked around the edge with pumice stone then machine stitched all around. I also added Cheesecloth between the 2 layers on the top.

For the shape I've used Find It Trading Christmas Card set.....I have to say these dies are awesome & cut perfectly....Im really impressed with these & I'm a fuss-pot when it comes to dies.
The Spirited Birds are also a Find It Trading die as well which I also added green moss & pomegranate apples to. I used another sheet of North Pole for the birdies & branch.....

So the scrolly bit........yeah my technical term for the die-cut is from the Christmas Card Set die, its the centre one. I added green moss again to the leaves & a little bit of Natural Moss & pomegranates apples, a flower & a little fir cone (cone from my stash). This die is out of stock but you can still order it & Tracy will get it in.

Down the bottom corner I made 2 bows with white seam binding & one from green seam binding(from my stash but Tracy does a much nicer one here) & added some gorgeous bling to the centre.........yeah more pomegranate apples sneaked in there too....& a fir cone ;-) There is also a wee bit of Natural Moss there as well. 

On the blue top paper inside the inner frame I added a sprinkling of shabby white fran-tage & then added the Scrapiniec words Merry Christmas........these I left natural & just added a touch of Pumice Stone ink to them. 
The bottom I added a Little Darlings Gilded Oval die & one of my favourite leaf dies.

Thats it from me peeps. Thank you for stopping by & hope you have a wonderful day......

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
