The  Bird/berry stamp is also by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The rubber stamp quote is by Quietfire Design  

 (" Home - Congratulations" 5pce set);


I created a silhouette outline image of the holly corner to make my card base and cut with my electronic cutter from olive green toned cardstock. Scored and folded it. eCut a top layer from white cardstock, colored the edges with a Prisma Premier marker in a matching green tone, then adhered to my card base.

Die cut a couple of the corners (Spellbinders "Holly Frame" set), sponged with Distress "Crushed Olive" and then adhered to card overlapping part of the holly to give this curvy effect.

Die cut the bird cage (Impression Obsession), from white cardstock. Inked with Versafine Toffee, and embossed with Hot Stuff "Burnt Copper Leaves, inked again and embossed with "Turquoise Shimmer". Adhered to card.

I had made a silhouette eCut file for the bird stamp, eCut from white cardstock, stamped the image with Versafine Black Onyx, clear embossed and painted with QoR watercolors. I needed the bird to sit a little differently on my cage, so cut it apart and reassembled the way I needed it...

Stamped the "From my home to yours" using Just Rite "Curls" alphabet stamp set and the black, clear embossed.

Final touches added the pearl ribbon decorative border and the little green satin bow.

On the floor: Cut another of the die cut corners and adhered to edge. Stamped the quote on white cardstock using the black and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders oval die set and adhered to floor.

Added the faux stitching using the green marker.


Die cut the "Best Wishes" from white cardstock and embossed with Hot Stuff "Kettle Copper" embossing powder. Cut a piece of the green cardstock scored and folded it, layered the front side with a white piece of cardstock then adhered the die cut words, then adhered it to the floor as a stopper.
