My Bird Wishes You A Merry Christmas!

There are so many wonderful ideas on Pinterest, I don't know where to begin sometimes... This idea caught my eye immediately. 
The greenery is a combination of Cricut cuts, Nestabilities and punches. The bird is from our Artiste Cartridge along with a punched wing from a punch that I have. 
From there, it was a matter of layering everything together until it just looked right. I love the final effect. The bird stands out so nicely among all the greenery.

  1. I had that same idea to use that bird, but wasn't sure how I was going to pull off the holly, other than with the Art Philosophy cart. This is so pretty, Alyson.

  2. Alyson, this is stunning! Oh how I wish I could create with you!

  3. Gorgeous card, love the layering against the dry embossing.
