Joy, Wonder and Peace

Well, how's your day going???

Mine.... well not too good. I am so late with this post. I am so sorry. I usually have my posts up at midnight. Seems that my days have gotten away from me. LOL (Maybe it's because of the time change)

Since the Christmas holidays are arriving soon, I made a super Christmas card and a few of my friends will be receiving this little, easy to make, card.

I usually like to make A-7 cards or 6"X6" square cards but this smaller A-2 card is perfect for this design and packs a lot in a smaller card size.


This card design also lets me use some of the paper pieces that I just seem to love to save/hoard. 
I have so many scraps saved, I have enough for lots of cards,
 probably will last me for the rest of my life. LOL 
 I think we are all like that.

Anyway, to open this card, flip the bird back and then the card will open. 


I added the sentiment to a cardstock piece, positioned the same way as the bird on the flap.

The bow on the front is placed on the flap. I made it smaller and not too puffy.
 I didn't want to overwhelm this card. 


Here is a closer view. 
The bow is just a smaller double loop bow.and is the perfect size for this card. 

The Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker tool lets you choose the size of the bow and also how many loops you want the bow to have. 
Now that's flexibility


Order yours today over at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog.

I hope you've enjoyed this project and will link up with us this month for the November Challenge!

Super cute creation Barb! I love that little bird stamp and you have colored him beautifully. The yellow bow is the perfect finish!
