Winter Birdhouse

     I have been teaching a card class using the Graphic 45 Seasons Collection. It has been a fun year of cards. We made 16 cards and 4 calendars. We are on the home stretch here with the last season -- winter. I chose this paper because of the winter paper. I wanted to make this birdhouse. 
     I used the Silhouette to shape the roof. The birdhouse is placed on an easel card. 

     The birds in the hole are fussy cut from an ephemera card. I added flowers made from the Patterns and Solids, pine needles and pine ones from Elizabeth Craft Designs. There is antique gold glitter on the pine cone bases, then the overlays were added, so the glitter can peek through. I used a "not quite white" acrylic paint on the birdhouse and collage items. I sprinkled diamond glitter on the snow (paint) to add some extra sparkle.

     I pop dotted a chipboard tag, flower, and pine cone on the inside of the card. This makes the card rest perfectly to show off the birdhouse.

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
  • Season's Patterns and Solids 
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
