My card today is also for the Robin theme that I missed at my local Christmas Card Club.
I am posting my robin card very, very late! It seems everything in my life is a tad late, lately. Hope the ladies will forgive me.
Our Robin theme was set by Sylvie at Gibmiss blog. Sylvie makes gorgeous cards. It is well worth popping over for a wee visit. The other girls blogs are featured on my sideboard. They always have beautiful cards to view.
I chose a Penny Black Stickeroo as I could not find any robin themed stamps in my stash. I even scrolled through my saved digital images and could not find a true robin image. U|sing a stickeroo also saved my hands a bit of grief.
I used snippets from my bits box to mat the stickeroo and then created a couple more layers of mat so I could place the sentiment on the middle mat. The sentiment is a silver foil transfer rub on from a British Company...the name escapes at the moment. I think it is Craftwork Cards or perhaps Docraft. They were a new item at my local shop that I just couldn't resist!
The DP is actually a snippet of a 12x12 scrapbook paper. I bought up a wack of this paper on a clearance a few years ago. I cut them up into 6x6 squares and filed them into my cardmaking DP's. I used a snippet of white card for a Memory Box snowflake corner die and placed a few red diamonds onto the centers of the snowflakes.
Here is a better shot of that silver foil sentiment...I like the script and plan to use more of these...good thing the sheet of them is huge and contains all different fonts!
I am entering this card in the following challenges
1. Christmas Card Club - robins
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
