Partridge in a Pear Tree

I didn't think I had anything suitable for the CAS Christmas 'Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge' and then I remembered I had a die that had been a cover gift with a magazine ages ago.  So here is my card!

I trimmed a piece of white hammer card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank, rounded the corners and die cut a stitched circle from the centre.  I added a snippet of beige script paper behind the aperture and attached it to the card blank.  I then die cut the partridge from a snippet of dark green card and attached it to the centre.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white hammer card blank
     Immediate Media 'Partridge in a Pear Tree' die
     My Favourite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics' die
     Snippets of beige script paper, white hammer and green matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     CAS Christmas - Twelve Days of Christmas
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - No stamp or digital image
     Just Us Girls - Die Cut and a Window
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 384

Hi Kath

Your card and die are lovely!

I have all my cover gifts stored in a box of their own .. .. I love getting it out and having a delve through. It is easy to forget what is in there!

Hope you are having a good week.

Love Jules xx

Good thing you remembered this magazine cover gift. The script background is a great backdrop for your die cut partridge. A beautiful card. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas.

What a gorgeous die. I'm glad you remembered about and could make this lovely card. Thank you for joining in the No Stamp or Digi Challenge at CHNC this week.

Absolutely gorgeous Kath - I do love the die you used, so perfectly. I hope the floods have subsided - we still have rain here. Dudley is in the back garden building a dog and hedgie sized Ark! Sigh - so we'll be in the canoe then I guess.
