Partridge in a Pear Tree

The current 52 {Christmas} Card Challenge is 'Green and White' and I've made this card following the current sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.  The card was from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading off to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 5" x 5" white hammer
Die: Partridge in a Pear Tree (magazine freebie)
Snippets: Green pearl and white hammer card

I die cut the Partridge in a Pear Tree from both the green and white card.  The white silhouette of the die was trimmed and layered onto green card before being attached to the card front.  I then inlaid the green die cut into the card.  I removed all the small sections from the white die cut and inlaid them into the spaces on the card.

Ooh I bet replacing all those little white bits was a fiddly job. Using a single colour with such an intricate die helps to keep your card beautifully CAS. Thanks for joining us at CC&S this last week. Stef x
