Crafter's Companion Nordic Bird Christmas card

Hello everyone and welcome to the March challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges

This time we have not two but THREE themes for you to choose from or combine 

E for Embellishments

F for Fabric

and G for Glitz

I went for F for Fabric and came up with this card

I used the bird from the Crafter's Companion Nordic Christmas collection to die cut from burlap and reversed it to get a facing image.

I used Nuvo drops for the eyes and the sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers. A white gel pen finished it off. This is another card that would be easy to mass produce and would be economical to post.

I do hope you will visit my Teamies to see their fabulous inspiration and leave them some love.

I'd like to play along at

Wow, I love this card Carol! Those sweet birds die cut out of burlap are amazing! Like you, I love kraft colored paper and red together for Christmas or any other time. But now you have added burlap to the mix and I am totally loving this look! Your stitching looks great too. Just a beautiful all around card my friend! Hugs, Brenda
