Little Snowbird


Greetings! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
I realize we haven't even started Fall yet, but this snowbird caught my eye, and I just had to make something with him. Isn't he precious? This is another layered image. The bird, wing and limb were cut out again and layered with glue dots. I made this a gatefold card so the image could be the center attraction. I then embossed the side panels with the Snowdots folder. The bird image is adhered on one side panel with dimensionals. The inside sentiment is stamped and then layered with dimensionals onto patterned paper. I added some faux stitching both inside and on the panels.
I really like the idea of the gatefold card. My only objection to it is that it won't stay closed. If anyone has a suggestion as to how to make it stay flat, please feel free to share. I held this card flat with paperclips on the back fold in order to photograph it. I love the coziness of this little bird. Hope you do, too!
Thanks for stopping by and blessings to you!

  11. I love it! I hate that they don't stay closed! I stick a little sliver of velcro on mine. It holds it closed enough but not so much that the person has a hard time opening it so that it bends. Wow, did any of that make any sense? Hope so! :)
