MFT November Release Countdown--Day 3

We're on Day 3 of My Favorite Things November Release Countdown, and today
I'm sharing not one, but two cards using a new Pure Innocence set called
 Season's Tweetings along with a cool new set of stitch lines Die-namics.

I die cut a panel from white card stock with the rectangle element from
Blueprints 24, then added the wonky stitching lines on the bottom.

The little girl was colored with a combination of Copics and colored pencils
and die cut with the coordinating dies. I colored the blue jay with Copics
and adhered him and the little girl on the panel.

I stamped the sentiment and added a sprinkling of snowflakes.
The card base was stamped with Balloon Strings Background (it's back in stock!)
to mimic the wonky stitching lines, and I adhered the panel to complete the card.

For my second card, I used kraft card stock and colored the little girl and bird
with Prismacolor pencils, then die cut them with the coordinating dies.
The panel was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24 and I added
the zigzag stitching lines on the bottom for a bit of interest and to ground her.

I stamped the sentiment, popped up the girl and bird with dimensional
adhesive, then adhered the panel to a kraft card base. I love the different
looks you get just by switching up the card stock and your coloring medium.
