Christmas Card Swap Kit - Robin

This is the final card from the card swap kit  with Nonni and Pia .

Here I used the patterned paper from the kit and die-cut it to make the robin the focal point. I framed it using some leftover woodgrain paper from one of Nonni's kits.  I embossed the base card with a woodgrain pattern and distressed some patterned paper with a music embossed pattern, adding twine and the charm from the kit. The sentiment was cut on the Silhouette.
I'd like to enter:
Holly Jolly Christmas  ornament (the charm)

  1. Gorgeous card! Such a sweet image and I love all the texture with your fabulous embossing! xxx

  2. Lovely card! I love the robin. Thank you for joining us at Cardz 4 Galz. Sian.

  3. This is very cute! I wanted to use this paper in a similar way but did not come up with an idea... I'm glad you did! I love the torn edges.

  4. I was wondering about using this paper in a similar way, but then I found the gold tag and corrugated paper which falled onto the acetate and I still had this tree piece, so then my directions changed. But I love that you went through with it, it's a great idea to use a DP as the focal image.

  5. What a great card. Love the little ornament charm you added. Thanks for joining us at Holly Jolly for our Ornament challenge. Good luck.
