Wednesday Words

The challenge this week at Less is More is to use newsprint and I made another Christmas card for my box.

We'd love you to display our banner

I wanted to make a really simple card with tiny elements reminiscent of the Christmas stamps I can remember from when I was younger.


I started by stamping the script onto a piece of scrap card and then die cut it into a stamp shape. I stamped and coloured the bird and then fussy cut it before mounting onto foam pads.


I kept the sentiment small and simple in line with the rest of the card.  I'm thinking this might just become my mass produced card this year - it's quick and easy to make and I'm rather taken by the birds in this stamp set.

Supplies:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Winter Sparrows; Inkylicious, Elements 1; SU, Endless Wishes
Ink: Memento, London fog, tuxedo black; SU, cherry cobbler
Die: DoCrafts, postage stamps
Promarker: crimson

Thanks for looking today, your visit and time is much appreciated.
