Winter Is For The Birds

Hi everyone! Today is my day to share over at My Craft Spot blog. Here is a quick and simple card I created with the newly released *Think Snow* stamp set. 

I created the tag for sentiment using the *Tiny Doilies*
metal dies set. I actually cut felt with the metal dies for a fun
look. I thought with all the snow it could use a little warmth. :)
The felt I used came from a paper store that is now out of business,
so I can't recommend that store, but I can recommend what type of felt
to look for if you go shopping for some. One thing I noticed while I was cutting the felt is,
that the thinner felt worked best. I had a couple of different types of felt on hand,
the thinner felt really cut nice and crisp. I didn't have any little fibers to cut with
scissors after running it through my Cuttlebug.
Here is a closer look at the cute sentiment *Winter is for the birds*
from the new stamp set *Think Snow* by My Craft Spot.
I added a wood button with some brown jute-I LOVE the new jute!
The birds are cut from the Winter Woodland cartridge at 1.35".
I sized them with my Gypsy. The tree is also from the Winter Woodland
cartridge cut at 3.50". 
Here is another look at the felt layered tag.
 Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you feel inspired to make something fun and creative using your My Craft Spot stamps and metal dies. Have a great week!
