Winter Bird Notecards

Last week I shared a calendar that I made for DD's birthday.  I used the Calendar Birds from Nicecrane Designs.  I also got a sheet of Christmas Birds.  I made them into some note cards that are perfect for thank you notes or for any Winter occasion.





The images are already colored so it's really quick and easy to put together a set of cards.

I used snippets for matting and embossed a couple of different backgrounds. So I'm off to Pixie's Snippets Playground

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps: None
Ink: None
Paper:  Whisper White, Snippets of Basic Black and Dark Green
Other:  Square Lattice EF, Kars Snowflake EF (retired Cuttlebug)

I hope you aren't buried under all the snow that's been falling in some parts of the country and are able to stay warm.  These cold days, I'm so thankful for a warm house and hot food! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

These are so beautiful. The bird pictures are gorgeous. Must pay Nicecrane a visit as they would be perfect for my eldest son as he's a keen birdwatcher.

These are lovely images and make wonderful cards. I have a number of colored graphics but didn't know if they were eligible for any card challenges. I used one once and someone thought I had colored it. ;)

A beautiful note-card set Bonnie. I love the bird images and the embossing. I keep looking at the Lattice folder in my SU catalogue - I think it's time I bought one!

Hope this comment goes through - it disappeared when I tried to send it a few minutes ago!

These are some of the most gorgeous images, and how wonderfully well you have used them with the mesh EF. So very lovely. I keep saying I'm going to get some of these bird images, and I haven't yet. Each time I see them used so prettily, I just drool & drool. TFS, Hugs & hope Cary is warmer than Greenville. Expecting 7 tonight, and it's getting there fast. Whistling wind too. Be safe
