Card Design: Christmas Birds with Nicecrane Designs

Hello on this last hour of the last day of the month!  It is time to share my latest Nicecrane Designs creation with you all.  This one uses one of the sweet images from the Vintage Birds Greeting Cards collection. There are some lovely images in this set.  

Today I'm showcasing one of the images suitable for making a Christmas card.  I've been so busy behind the scenes that I am a bit behind in making my Christmas cards.  Maybe it is the reduced activity on my blog that has also caused the loss of two of my followers in the past two weeks or I suppose it could be because I don't really get to visit anyone anymore. :( are my card and the details...

Christmas Cards to date for 2015:  22
General Info:

  • I opted to go non-traditional for this Christmas card basing the palette on colour choices from the image.

Digital Image Details: 
  • Vintage Birds Greeting Cards:  This great set features several bird images, some suitable for Christmas cards.  For this card I used the image you see in the top right hand corner of the preview below.  Click on the name or the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.
  • The ribbon is Celebrate It brand and was purchased at Michael's.

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This awesome sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC. I coloured it digitally using different colours from the image.  You can purchase it in the "Tis the Season 2" Vintage Image Transfer and Word Art Set.  I've linked the watermark below to go to its location in the store.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for more awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card, image and sentiment bases:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The designer paper is from Recollection's The Sweetest Thing Paper Pad.
  • Matting:  From my stash but originally from one of the  Recollection cardstock collections that I own.
