Crafter's Inspiration Magazine 12 Freebies - Robins

I love this magazine, especially the freebies and so far I have managed to make several cards with them.

The little Robins (two of the free stamps included), are gorgeous and because they are not a huge stamp I found them really easy and quick to colour and are the perfect size to decorate an Accordian card. So here is the card I want to show this weekend:


I used the Square Accordian die and the Holly overlay, using Centura Pearl Card for the base and Core'dinations cardstock for the overlay. I would highly recommend you use Stick It for this overlay, it isn't essential as such but because the cut is so intricate it saves lots of time that would be spent trying to apply glue.

I used liquid pearls (red) to add the berries on the overlay and red gems to decorate the inner panels.

Now I will apologise because while I used Spectrum Noir pens I cannot for the life of me find my notes listing the colours used. (If I do find it at some point in the future I will come back and update this section).

  2. Some crafty friends were playing with these dies in the week and
    have to admit I haven't the patience for them BUT you always seem to make beautiful cards with them.
