Bluebird Hot Cocoa

Hello, everyone! I'm back again with another winter card! This one depicts a bluebird with hot cocoa! I mentioned earlier that I have people on my Christmas list who do not like Christmas so you will notice I make some cards with winter sentiments. I went with a blue/brown colour scheme for more of a masculine look.


The cute clip-art is from Diddybag and I fussy-cut, popped up with foam tape, and added Glossy Accents to the mug. The snowflake die-cut from Stampendous is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and popped up with foam tape. I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches:



I embossed the blue cardstock with Darice Snowflake Background.  The icicle border is Impression Obsession Icycle Edger, die-cut twice, once from white and next from white glitter cardstock, and I layered them together, with a strip of brown polka-dot washi tape.  The sentiment from Poppystamps You Melt My Heart is stamped in Ancient Page Chocolate. To finish off the card, I added a number of white sequins.

  8. I love your version of the sketch Kitty, substituting the snowflake for the circle was a great idea. The little birdie with his hot cocoa is very cute and I like the winter sentiment you added.
    Cheers,
