Red and Green Joy with Bird and Leaves

Our local American Legion post asked me for some Christmas cards that the group could sign, to be mailed to elderly members.  I'm always happy to support our troops and our veterans with what I make.

I like these strong, crisp colors with the soft blue background.  A green stripe anchors the label shapes, while there's a sense of energy from the accents of red and green bird, leaves, and tiny starburst.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Paper Source spruce (deep green), Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), stamper's select white, and the bitty dot print from PTI spring rain (light blue) pattern pack
  • Dies are WPlus9 folk art florals (bird and leaves - retired), WPlus9 label layers 1 (white - retired), and PTI wonderful words: joy, PTI star gazer (red shape inside the "O"), and PTI mat stack 4 (red).
  • I used an EK Success 3/16" punch for the red berry.
  • The card is computer-printed inside with "Merry Christmas" in red ink using Papyrus font, bold, expanded spacing.
