Robins on branches - 2 C6 Christmas cards - Day 353 of my 366 day challenge

Robins on branches - 2 C6 Christmas cards - 
Day 353 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I have written a couple of days ago about a card I made using these toppers but when I came to look at it again, I realised that I had stamped the sentiment upside down! So rather than wasting the toppers, I used them to make these.

Robins on branches - 2 C6 Christmas cards

How I made these cards:-

  • I had, as I said earlier, both these toppers already which I had made out of a couple of peel off stickers which I had placed on pentagons coloured by using some "Blue - B01" Generation INX dies.
  • I then mat and layered them to a couple of label/tag shapes which I had cut out in blue card and added that to some cream cardstock.
  • I had also cut out a "jagged edged" strip out of "blue" card which I had cut  out using my Brother ScanNCut and trimmed it to fit both of the cards in the centre of them.
  • I then glued on the toppers using CS glue.
  • Finally I used a "flower" stamp (I can't remember if it was from Tattered Lace or Hunkydory and stamped each corner of one of the cards using a "Blue" ink pad - Generation INX, Memento or DoCrafts do great colours!

And there you are - really simple to make Christmas cards that I made as a result of a mistake in stamping! I used a couple of peel off stickers, some alcohol markers and some stamps.
