Happiest Holidays Coll.2 Heaven and Nature Sing

Good morning! Today is day four of our Happiest Holidays Collection 2 with the gorgeous Heaven and Nature Sing set. These little birdies are on a branch of holly berries and leaves with a few big Hellebore (Lenten Rose) blooms for a splash of pizzazz. Once again the ever so talented Marcella has drawn a fantastic set that I know you will have in your Power Poppy Collection shortly.  ;-)  Check out her inspiration over on the Power Poppy Blog today. 

Once I saw this set I knew exactly the fold I wanted to create for this gorgeous image. This is a standard A2 card opening from a side view. I cut 2 inches off the edge of the front so that you can see the inside a bit with the flower stamped on the corner but the sentiment is hidden when folded. I stamped the image on white card stock, colored with Copics. Then I die cut using Radiant Rectangles that is layered onto a evergreen card stock die cut in Resplendent Rectangles. Added some textures to the background panel with the ever loved Swiss Dots and tied some gold cord around the end before adhering down to the front. A few of the gold Sequins to the corners and voila!  Hard to see in the photo but I do have some gold seduko gel pen added to the leaves for sparkle that you can see in real life.  ;-)  Below is the inside when the card is open.
