Scandinavian Style Holiday Card by Katie

Scandinavian Style Holiday Card by Katie

Posted by ScrapbookPal Inc on

Hey there friends, Katie here.  I am happy to share a lovely Scandinavian style holiday card for you today.  It features some new products from Spellbinders’ Winter Tales Collection.

I have some Scandinavian heritage and I enjoyed using this die set to make a lovely holiday card.  I started by die cutting the bird in Kraft Cardstock.  Then, I used my blending brush and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to add some brown shading to the head and breast.

Next, I cut out the same image in red.  I used a bright red, cherry like cardstock.  I mounted the two layers together. I used a bit of other cardstock behind to reinforce the cut outs so they don’t fall out. 

Then I cut out the wings, plume, and tailfeathers in the same red.  I used a darker read to cut out the tail feathers again.  I put the layers together alternating colors and used scrappy tape and foam to adhere them, the wings and the plume.  Then I added some pearls to the head plumage using glue dots.

After the bird was finished, I put it aside and pulled out some plaid paper that accented the reds and browns from the bird.  I also pulled out some green cardstock and cut a strip for the middle.  I used my Misti with the Spellbinders Peace and Joy Stamps with the brown ink along the right side.  Then I mounted this on my 4 X 5.25 patterned paper.  Next, I mounted this layer on the green base.  Then I came back in and added my bird. 

Well, that’s all folks.  I hope you enjoyed this post today.  This is my last post as part of the SP DT, it has been so fun! As a farewell to me, please check out these amazing products in the shop and hit us up for more inspiration any time.

I appreciate your stopping by! ~Katie
