Chickadee Sticker

Whew, this is the last of some scheduled posts I did after my Sunday evening card making marathon. Now I have to stop and get some of those Northwood bird stamps I bought stamped and colored for my Sweeties. So this is another sticker from the VOS I've had in the stash.


- Stickers were in a ?K & Co pack? from years ago. The frilly mat is a trim out from the Decorative Label 8 snippet on the Gold & Silver Baubles card, in an earlier post. I positioned the larger die to cut the frame, placing a smaller one from the same set inside to create this mat piece. Embossed it to enhance the intricate design since I intended to use it as a mat for Mr. Chickadee. The round date sticker was from the same package. These stickers are on dimensional tape.

- plaid paper from a 4.5 x 6.5 Paper Studio Vintage Christmas pack that I bought ?last year. Hobby Lobby still has this available in the postcard size and the 12x12 pack - at least last time I was in the store. Thought it went well with the plaid trim on the sticker.

- MS deep edge border punch from my travels, from a current year 6x6 Christmas pack.

Called it done. Now need to do some inserts (which I would love to decorate like some of the wonderful cards I see on blogs...but doubt I'll have the time to do more than stamp a verse). I need to get some labels made up and printed out for the envelopes; that's just about as decorated as I get with the envelopes. Some of the ones I've enjoyed, were nearly as pretty as the cards inside. I'd have a hard time trying to preserve the envelope if I received one that gorgeous.

Come again when you can. Hugs.

Being a bird lover, I adore that bird. Such a pretty card and I think I have that plaid paper or have used it already. I bought a pretty stamp for my envies and forgot each would have to be colored so it didn't get used. No time for that this year. Maybe I'll be better organized next year.

What a beautiful sticker, Mary! I love chickadees! We have a few of the little Carolina Chickadees that come to our bird feeder and I always love watching them. Pretty lacy label and I love the plaid paper!

What a beautiful card Momma Mary! I love those stickers, so beautiful are those birds. I also love that label mat, so that is fancy and really dresses up the sticker if that is possible. I don't think I've ever seen such pretty stickers! Love the fabulous papers you used too, so Christmasy! lol Hugs!
