I wish you a very "birdie" Christmas time!!!!

Hi there!

I hope you are doing well.
After all week of just taking care of kids and house.... and having a really bad cold, I got a bit crafty this morning and caught up with my Christmas cards making. I'm running really behind.... Luckily the cards are a bit simpler to what I'm used to make, so it doesn't take me as long!

Today I bring you the card/gift card holder that I made this morning. I used this fun digital stamp from From the Heart Stamps called "Seven Christmas Birds".  With this card I went back to my love for distressing... and my addiction to washi tape! I just can't get enough of it... every time I go to the craft shop, I have to get a few rolls!

Card recipe

Christmas Pattern Paper (freebie from magazine a few years ago)
Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour image
Washi tape
Pink and cream twine
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose
Tim Holtz Distress tool
7 x 5 card blank

The card can also be used as a gift card holder.
