Elizabeth Crafts Designs - Christmas Jumper card

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I sent to relations in America.  I have mentioned before that every Christmas I design a card show casing something typically British and something typically American.



Christmas Jumper Day has become a tradition here in the UK and America, I think it may be called Ugly Sweater Day in the US though.  I decided to use two birds that depict each of our countries.


Supplies used;
Elizabeth Crafts Designs Robin and Cardinal bird and Jumper dies
Scraps of paper from my stash
Woodware tag punch 
Joy! Crafts Snowflake stamp 
Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Distress Ink
Black Stabilo point 88 fine 4,0 pen



The robin could be a number of birds depending on how you coloured it.  I have chosen to use patterned paper to add some interest. 


Creative Blessings.  x
