Wren in a pine tree....

After coming up with the cardinal samples I shared with you this week, I decided I wanted to make MORE birds.  They are so much fun!  So here is a wren I made for a Christmas card.  Isn't he cute!!

This card is Wild Wasabi, layered with Soft Suede and them covered with a designer paper that retired a year or so ago.  I love the snowflakes on this paper and wish we still carried it!!
 I punched the bird from Crumb Cake cardstock using the 1-3/8" circle punch.  His tail and wing are from Soft Suede.  His tail and beak are the smallest heart in the Heart to Heart punch.  I just cut a notch in it for the beak, so it looks like the little fellow is singing.  His wing is punched with the Two-step Bird punch.
 For the tree branches, I cut out a snowflake using the Snowflake punch and then cut pieces off of it and glued them onto the branch I freehand cut.
I stamped the Winter Wonderland sentiment from the Bright Christmas stamp set in the Holiday mini.  It is popped up with dimensionals to give it some height. 

This is a fairly quick card to make but such a cute one, don't you think?  Thanks for visiting me today!!  More birds to follow in coming days......
Smiles, Laura
