Merry Chickmas

Look at these cute Spindly Birds that have just been released in the Stampendous July catalog.  Just looking at them puts a smile on my face and those knobby knees are too funny! This bird pair makes such a cute Christmas card and they would even make a great winter birthday card!

1.  Stamp Spindly Birds with VersaMark Ink and color with pencils.
2.  Die cut image with a frame from the Fitted Frames A Set and chalk around images with blue chalk using a flat brush.
3.  Using a VersMarker, color the snow (it will be clear), then sprinkle with Spoonful of Snow and heat from underneath so it doesn't blow off.
4.  Diecut a larger frame from Evergreen paper using the same set, wrap the bottom with Gold Velvet Shimmer ribbon and pop up the Spinkly Birds.
5.  Stamp a Mint Julet colored card with snowflakes from the Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Set.
6.  Stamp sentiment from the Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Set with black ink and die cut using a frame from the Fitted Frames B set, layer onto a larger green frame and glue to card.
