I’ve made six Christmas cards this week, and for some reason I’ve yet to fathom, they all contain robins!  I really don’t know why, it just happened.  Here’s the last batch, four of them, hence the “Flocking” post title.  All the same, just a little different, and all are replicas of the Paint The Town Red card that I posted on Sunday.  Only this time I sliced the die cut evenly in half.

 

The robin stamp is from the Penny Black clear set Jolly Friends, and he was coloured with Prisma pencils and Stickles.  The papers all came from the scrap box.  The one on the left is glittery MME, the other three are DCWV.

The die is Spellbinders Labels Five, sliced in half with Crystal Stickles added to the embossed edge.  The sentiments are all Penny Black too, from the clear sets The Wonder and Holly Jolly and from the cling set Caroling Penguins.  Inks used were ColourBox Wicked Black and Sapphire Silk,  Memento Cottage Ivy, Rhubarb Stalk & Bahama Blue.

The snowflake die is Memory Box Precious Snowflakes, the one with the bow on top; I just positioned it on the card scraps to cut the snowflake part only.  I added a few gems from Michaels to finish it off.
