The open bird die by Penny Black is beautiful for on a Christmas card, but also very wel to use for wedding and spring cards.
With the paper from Eline's silver star papierblok I glued layers on the card, I distressed all edges of the paper for a playful effect.
Cut a circle out of Papicolor metallic babyblue paper and emboss it with the ice crystals embossing folder.
I cut the bird out of black paper gestanst and applied Brilliance ink on it for extra shine. With the same ink I stamped the text. I glued the bird on the circle and then the circle and the text on the card.
