Christmas Bird Cards...and Multiples!

You know that point where its time to crunch down and finish card-making for the holidays?  Yep, that is about now....maybe a few last-minute cards to go, or one big fabulous one for your significant other or child, but its ' Do or Die ' now for me!

So, I have been making multiples of some designs to make cards for the people in the neighbourhood who serve my coffee, or bag my items at the counter...all those indispensable people in my life! In fact, my cards are my little peace offerings in a way, because I can be a bore at times - well, probably a lot of times, lol!

Yes, those wonderful people are too terrific at times - always anticipating my needs, so I hope they like the fact that my time and effort into handmade cards are my way of saying thanks for putting up with me during the year, ha ha!

If you saw my Hot Drink Card post - that's for the staff at my corner coffee place.  But somehow I have made a lot of bird cards for everyone else - go figure!

Here are some ideas if you have some BIRD stamps {or the formerly-known as Quickutz Anime Bird Die}...

Glittered Birds and Anime Birds Card. 
"Merry" greeting stamp from Fresh Squeezed Stamps: Hello December

Rolled a music note stamp back and forth over white cardstock, cut the bird using Big Shot and Anime Birds die. Stamped ' Merry ' from my newest "Hello, December" stamp set. 

Large Birds stamped with red and turquoise markers, and an ink pen to apply 
corresponding coloured glitter. Punched a border from glittered cardstock [Glittered Paper Stack]

Bird and pinecones adorned with red glitter. EK SUCCESS's Real Estate Punch for Bird,  
 Borders created using Scallop Punch, tied with Bakers Twine. 
Background stamp in monotone [red on red] ink over cardstock. 

Making multiples!  

Hope you are all getting your cards done!  If not - GO DO THEM - NOW!!!
