All Occasion Woodland Birdhouse Card

It's Jeanne starting the week off with an all occasion card using the Woodland Birdhouse from Christmas Part 3 release.

When I first saw this die I was struck by how pretty and versatile it is.  Although perfect for a Christmas card, it works great for a "thinking of you" or birthday card.  I left the front without a sentiment so I could choose how to use it, however since creating it I've decided to send it to a friend who has a birthday a few days into January.

To create the background I used Distress Resist Spray which gave me some nice white snow-like sprinkles when I applied Distress Oxide ink in Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass with a blending brush.  I then used Distress Oxide Spray in Tumbled Glass for the blue sprinkles.

All of the image pieces were cut in white and colored with a combination of Distress Oxide inks, regular dye inks and Copic markers (the berries).    I used five different browns to get a variety of color and depth between the house, branch and pine cones.

I finished off the card by coating all the snow in Wink of Stella (it sparkles nicely in person but is hard to see in the photo), some gold thread and sequins.

 Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you have a wonderful week.
