I've used these cute little guys on another card (you can check it out HERE) but today I wanted to create a super simple, relatively flat card that looks like it has lots of dimension!
To create my card, first I wanted to create the illusion of falling snow on the kraft card base so I used my most favorite new stencil from the Simon Says Stamp Holiday release, Falling Snow and the technique from THIS blog post. I used the Unicorn White Ink Pad and Ink Blending Tool to apply the ink.
Next, I stamped the branch using the Hero Arts Cup O Joe Ink and die cut it using the coordinating die.
I stamped the leaves and birds using Memento Black Ink and colored them in with these Copic Markers...
I added some detail to the birds with a white pen and the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and then die cut them using the coordinating dies.
Before adhering any of the die cuts to my card, I stamped and embossed the greeting using Versamark and red embossing powder.
Then I simply glued all the elements in place!
