Wild Rose Studio 'Love Bird Tree'

Have YOU made a start on your Christmas preparations yet ? If you would like to avoid the last minute panic then I would suggest that you join in with our Christmas Challenges. Come December you will be glad you did ;-) 

Please scroll down to see the winners of the last challenge.
The theme for the next 2 weeks is



 'I' Is For I Love You/For A Loved One

You can use either a sentiment with love' in it,or an image of a couple or a card for a specific person/family member any of these options will do :-)

For my card I thought I would use this gorgeous Wild Rose Studio 'Love Bird Tree' Craft Die . It isn't specifically a Christmas die, but I thought it would work for so many occasions. 



Although the tree looks black in the photos it is a very dark Midnight Green, lovely colour IRL. I decided to make the little birds Doves and love the stark white against the dark tree. I did colour them to look like little Robin's  originally, but these looked better.

This was so quick and easy to make and I will make a few more before I put the supplies away. I think I will make the banner in vellum though, I didn't have time to make another sample but I do think vellum would look better :-)


I finished the inside too, just to prove it is a Christmas card ;-) haha
