Let Heaven and Nature Sing

Here’s that little Christmas Birds cube in a Christmas card. This is the same bird cube I used on the Faith is the bird Sympathy card from last week. I promised a Christmas card to compare and here it is.
Sorry I missed Turtle Tuesday, but we’ll have a new one next week.

Nature Sing:
Card dimensions 5 ½ h x 4 ¼ w

Materials: CS – Black, Breeze (CTMH), Real Red (SU!); Paper –Accademia (Fabriano); Ink – Archival Black (CTMH); Stamps – Christmas Birds cube (Sunshine Designs); Ribbon – red grosgrain (ribbon share – texasjodylynn), Tombow markers, waterbrush, Cuttlebug and embossing folder (Provocraft), foam tape, glitter glue (Crayola), sandpaper.

The snowflake embossing is distressed using sandpaper to reveal the white core of the card stock, and the berries on the little branch in the bird’s mouth are covered I glitter – not sure that it shows, but it’s nice and sparkly!

I’m working on finishing a Christmas card that turns into a tealight cover – and I’ll do up the instructions for everyone as well, in case you want to make one yourself. Those little flameless tealights are great things for the paper candle covers!

And do you remember the collapsible calendar from THIS POST? Well, the 2008 template is up on the Victorine Originals website if you want to get a head start on yours for the New Year. Click on 3D Templates, then scroll down to the collapsible calendar.

Until next time, have a great day!
