I made this card with a birdwatcher in mind. I made the background first. I clear embossed the snowflakes (Inkadinkado) onto white card then sponged Distress Inks over the top (Barn Door and Pine Needles). I matted it onto white card and then cut the aperture using Nestabilities Octagons. Next I put a piece of parchment paper over an outline of a robin and drew him using Derwent Studio Pencils (the outline was from a card by Gail Sydenham from Parchment Magazine published in 2009). I placed my robin behind the aperture and then mounted the whole onto a green card base. I stamped the greeting onto card that had been sponged with Pine Needles and matted it onto white before popping it with foam pads.
