Found a piece of white hammered cardstock which was an odd size in the 'ends of paper' drawer.
The drawer is crammed full of odd bits so have chucked a lot of it out - I keep the odd bits thinking I will use them up but never do so have been ruthless and emptied it - I bet now I'll be looking for little bits of paper and card!
I used up three additional bits of card in addition to the white piece to make this - yet another CAS Christmas card.
The red was put through the 'crimping' machine - (another little tool that I've had for ever and used rarely!) and after punching out a border along one edge of the white, put the crimped red piece under it so that it made a more reasonable sized card.
I punched out lots of green ferny leaves and made them into a wreath/nest.
A scrap of gingham ribbon was stitched onto a button with some twine and stuck into the centre of the wreath/nest.
The red birdie got himself a sparkly black gem for an eye and he's popped onto the ferny leaves with a sticky dot.
Used up the rest of the gingham ribbon which just managed to make it across the front (lucky girl I am!) and stamped a greeting in Crimson Red Versamark.
