Keeping Christmas: April

Hi and welcome to Keeping Christmas: April.

How are you doing during this strange time of sheltering? Hopefully enjoying
some card crafting?

I have some inspiration for your Christmas card making.

My card uses the Greetery's  Robin and Wren, a stamp set that didn't get used
during the Christmas season. I'm so happy to say I'm in love with those sweet
birds. I paired them with another of the Greetery's sets: Botanicuts Pine Bough.
Betsy has several You Tube videos showing how to color the pinecones and
add the chunky glitter, which I found so helpful. Really adds to the festive
feel of the holidays. 

I began with a white cardstock and die cut  Nordic Frames (also the Greetery), and
inked it with Distress Oxide. I then splattered some metallic watercolor onto the panel.

It's nice to watch the Christmas stash growing!
