Merry Christmas Mom and Dad

Create with TLC's current club is called Winter Club with some funtastic images not only for Christmas. The image I want to showcase today is Keeping you company on a snowy winter's night. 

I thought these two birds sitting on a branch would make a purrfect card for Mom and Dad. My parents were so much in love and were always holding hands, cuddling and they died within a month of each other - this card is a tribute to their love:

  • size A2 card using DCWV The Winter Combo Box of Cards 
  • tip for making cards is after the season, I pick up a box of cards and envelopes which make great easy cards and they already have the envelopes not to mention the price is usually less than half!!!!!
  • background is a purrfect pieces of paper which I found in my stash
  • birds were colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and Whispers Markers with the Stickle Fairy spreading glitter and glitz with her wand!!!
  • ribbon was from a Christmas ribbon swap in a previous year is wrapped around the background along with tied in a bow
  • tiny rhinestones added in center of snowflakes 
  • border is Martha Stewart Eyelet Border punch with scraps of the background
  • sentiment, "Merry Christmas Mom & Dad" was also from Create with TLC Winter Club
  • inside sentiment, "May LOVE and JOY shine upon your home this Christmas and throughout the new year" had been from last year's Christmas Club with  Create with TLC
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch and additional scraps are on the left side of the card
  • background is the balance of the paper I had found in my stash matching the front of my card
