By the way, you can order this stencil and last weeks stencil through your local craft store that carries Dreamweaver products. Everyone who takes my Friday night class will get one of these for FREE!
Make them into partridges and add little holly berries onto the wreath. Add some bling and people will overlook the idea that this could actually be for Valentine's Day. Now, it just looks Christmasy! Of course, you could play off of the 'two calling birds' idea too! Those little tendrils of color on the paper, that's from the stencil too! Just some ink and a stipple brush will get you that look!
Oh and I have a secret about this card too.... I actually used YELLOW paste for this stencil. YUP! Not white but yellow! If you look closer, you can see that the birds have a slight bit of yellow on their bodies, that's just the paste! So, next time you are looking to paste with your stencils and you look at your stash, think OUTSIDE of the box! These stencils are extremely versatile and the pastes, they can be changed to suit your needs too!
Here are both cards, ready for Friday night's Dreamweaver Holiday Cards class at the Scrapbook Cupboard:
