ORNAMENTAL PINE BACKGROUND
I've made a lot of cards featuring the Ornamental Pine set, but this time I wanted to try using it for a background. The chickadee from Our Daily Bread Designs came with a coordinating die, which makes it easy use in a variety of ways.
First I stamped the pine bough a few times along the side of the panel, then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the stitched rectangle die. After stamping the bird and coloring it with colored pencils, I used the matching die. I cut away some unwanted branches before mounting it to the panel with dimensionals. I added the greeting and used TomBow glue to attach both panels to the gray card.
