So here is my first card made using one of the new Spring Mini sets, Always. As soon as I saw this set this idea popped into my mind and I am quite happy with how it came together. Maybe it's because of my middle name but this little birdy had to become a cute "red, red robin a bob, bob bobbin' along".. bring back Primary school!?! Now I don't know if you think it is Christmassy enough, I was told it was a bit of a stretch using this set for Christmas, (hi Marelle ;0) but it reminds me of the old style of English Christmas scene with the robin and the berries.
To make the berries I used my crop-a-dile to punch some real red cardstock. The card was very unbalanced with the big strip of white at the bottom so I had to add something. I used a section of the scalloped circled punch which I then punched further using the smallest circle punch, to add detail to the top corners and try to balance the card out. I'm not convinced but it's growing on me! The shadows show the lovely late afternoon winter sun we were enjoying in our back room.
