Lawn Fawn's Winter Sparrow stamp set

Hello! I hope everyone had a good weekend! The weather was very gloomy for me, but overall I had a pretty relaxing one. I decided to make another holiday card and kept it pretty clean and simple.

For this card, I used the Winter Sparrows stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The images are super cute! I stamped the images onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored them in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers:

  • Hat: Turquoise Green (42)
  • Earmuffs: Purple (82)
  • Scarf: Carmine Red (22)
  • Leaves: Pale Green (45) and Light Green (41)
  • Bird body: Beige (72) and Vanilla (73)
  • Bird beak: Brown (60)

Originally I wanted to create a stitched square for this card, but the stitched square sizes I have were not working out in terms of size. So, I decided to use a circle instead. I took a piece of white card stock (A2 size) and placed my stitched circle die onto it, making sure it was evenly spaced on the top and sides. Then I cut out the circle with my die cutting machine. The idea for this card was to have the images sitting on a blended background within the raised stitched circle, so I cut a piece of bristol smooth (A2 size) and used distress oxide to blend the ink colors over it until I was happy with the way it looked. These are the colors I used for my background:

  • Picked Raspberry (top)
  • Worn Lipstick (middle)
  • Spun Sugar (bottom)

To assemble the card, I glued on one of the branches to the edge of the stitched circle. Then I placed foam tape over the card panel and the branches. Next, I placed this on top of the blended background. I glued the rest of my images onto the blended background. For one of the birds, I added foam tape to the back of it to create some more dimension. To finish the card, I attached my card panel to a top folding notecard.
