Stunning Red and White Christmas card | Winter build a birdhouse dies

Updated: Aug 9, 2021

Hello everyone and thank you for joining me, Today I have this stunning Red and White Christmas Bird house to share with you, let's jump right in.

To start I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock to be 1/4 inch smaller than my A2 sized card base and ran it through my die cutting machine with a 3D snowflake embossing folder to add some texture. I then cut out the winter bird house from School house red cardstock as well as other images from the build a winter bird house die set. To add some depth to my birdhouse I used three distress oxide colours in Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot around the school house red cardstock die cuts.

I also cut out a base for my bird house to sit on from the Summer build a bird house die set, and a few elements out of pearl glitter cardstock for some added bling. I used the coordinating stamp set and stamped out a sentiment on the same red cardstock, trimmed it down into a banner and added some black Soot around the edges to help tie it into the card.

Then all I had left to do was adhere everything down, I used a mix of Bearly Art glue and thin 3D foam squares to add dimension and fluffed up my poinsettia's to give them a more layered look, I also added a few jewel's into the centers of the poinsettia's for some added shimmer and shine. If you would like a more in-depth look at how I put this card together please check out the video down below. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you would like to know exactly what I used.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
