Partridge Branch


It's hard to believe that there are only three more months till Christmas!  If you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, now is the time :-).  Anne here and to help motivate you, I created a Christmas card using the Partridge Branch die.


After die cutting it from white cardstock, I used my Copic markers to color this image.  A Wink of Stella (Clear) brush pen was used to give a soft sparkle to the plume and to the pears.  The frame, which was left over from another project, was covered with Cloud Nine velvet glitter and the background was dry embossed using a Crafters Companion embossing folder (Christmas Merriment).  The card front was also dry embossed, using a Spellbinder M-Bossabilities embossing folder (Dainty Dots).

To create my sentiment, using the same color Copic as the bird plume, I colored a piece of scrap cardstock and die cut the DV Sweet Wordlet Tis The Season

  1. This is so pretty Anne! Love the Cloud Nine frame - I never think to hold on to those, but now I will - I really like what it adds to the card. The coloring is perfect with the WOS shine. Awesome job.
