Happy Tuesday morning!  I have a clean and simple card  to share with you today. I have been wanting to try my hand at adding pine branches to the My Favorite Things Branch and gave it a try on this project. 

I wanted most of the branch to still show so I only added sprigs of pine to the tips of the limbs using glossy accents.  I added snow to the branch and pine sprigs using Liquid Applique and smoothing it lightly with my fingers to remove bubbles and to avoid the dreaded blob.

I hand made  the birdhouse using square punches and my scissors.  I scored lines on the red birdhouse to look like wood and rough cut the roof and base of the house with my deckle scissors. I added the Liquid Applique snow to the roof and base of the house and added greenery and red ribbon for a Christmas touch. Here’s a closer view.KC Memory Box Ornament Border 1 close

I love the new Memory Box Ornament Border and thought it would look sweet along the base of the card.  I used the negative snowflakes from the die to create the fun red falling snow. I can’t wait to use the other negative ornament pieces on Christmas wreaths and tree cards.
