Today I'm sharing a project for the monthly blog hop with Papertrey Ink. Here's a look at the inspiration piece.
I've been working on felt Christmas ornaments based on the 12 Days of Christmas so I already have birds on the brain: Partridges, Turtle Doves, French Hens and Colly Birds. I decided to make a companion card to go along with my latest partridge and pear ornaments.
The bird, leaf and banner die cut on the card are from Songbirds and the black background banner is from Basic Bookmarks 2. The sentiment is from Avery Elle. The patterned paper is a mix of Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise and Hawaiian Shores. The partridge and pear are made with Papertrey felt in Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Melon Berry, Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse.
If you're interested, HERE'S the link to mmmcrafts for more info on the ornaments. The patterns are available to download and the detailed instructions are easy to follow. I've never sewn or embroidered anything in my life prior to these ornaments. If I can figure it out anyone can!
