The 12 Projects of Christmas 2022: Project #8 AND Big Sale!
I've had this project idea in mind since long before it was time to record and share The 12 Projects of Christmas 2022. This card definitely evolved as I contemplated the amazing Aspen Trees Dies found in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.
The original idea for the birdhouse card that started on Pinterest but evolved in my brain was now ramped up a notch or two.
So how did I make that birdhouse shape? Nothing to it! I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 4 1/4" x 11", scored in half at 5 1/2". Then I scored two more lines in an "x," 1 1/2" on either side of the center score line.
I added an Early Espresso layer behind the aspen trees to make those trees pop, then a label from the Labels Aglow Dies for the sentiment and the pretty bird from the Perched in a Tree stamp set all dolled up in red. Cherry Cobbler and Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends, that is.
I'm thinking you have some questions. How did I fold that card to get the house shape? How did I get the Early Espresso layer to fit as a house-shaped layer? How did I color the bird using such vastly different reds?
