Baby It's Cold Outside

The challenge this month over at scrappy frogs is to make a project that uses stitching in it. I decided to make a tall card, this card fits in a standard business envelope.
I started with a piece of Kraft card stock that I cut to 8" X 9" scored and folded it to make a 4" X 9" card base. I added a red card stock mat cut at 3 3/4" X 8 3/4" and some patterned paper cut to 3 1/2" X 8 1/2". I believe the patterned paper is from a DCWV paper stack I picked up last year. I cut the bird at 3" from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. I cut the sentiment at 1 1/2" from the same cartridge. I added some metallic blue faux stitching around the edge of the Kraft card base and the snowflake patterned paper. I also added some white faux to the red mat and to my little bird. Finally I had some white snowflake buttons that I sprayed with some glimmer mist and added some glimmer glaze to. I attached my cute little bird with an action wobble so he shivers when he moves. I add my sentiment with some foam tape and the buttons with some glue dots.

 I am a little behind in my posting and have a few more projects completed or almost completed so I hope to get those photographed and posted soon. Happy crafting everyone.
