ID: MC July 11 - Xmas Two Turtle Doves card
5"w x 7"h

Created: July 21, 2011


There was a challenge to use grey and purple and then there were a bunch to make an Xmas card, so that's how this card evolved.

This card also uses a stamp from the 12 Days of Christmas set by Quietfire Design

I started by stamping the turtle doves (Flourishes set #69) with Versafine and embossing with Platinum on a light grey cardstock. I used a very watered down watercolor for the leaves and Iridescent Medium for the feathers of the birds, cut around the image, then added beads of 3D fabric paint in a shiny red for the berries. Set it aside to dry. When dry I added black dots with a Sharpie marker.

Die cut the smaller of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis rectangles (#S4-317) from the light grey, then used the largest die from a charcoal grey. Added the purple checkered ribbon on the edge of the larger rectangle and layered the light grey rectangle on top, then adhered the cut out bird image.

The main card is the same light grey, which I selectively embossed with the Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland "snowflake border" folder (6 pce set #2000220), using my hard rubber mallet.

Adhered my Fleur de Lis rectangles, tied a peg bow and adhered that with some extra heavy gel medium. Stamped the words with Imperial Purple.
