First Day of Christmas Card

 A QUAIL in a pear tree and Wishes for a Merry Christmas!Quail-in-Pear-Tree

Stamps to make this card (and ornament below): California Quail Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Pears Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Holly & Mistletoe Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Enchanted Dogwood (branch), and Big and Bold Christmas Greetings Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Today’s “First Day of Christmas” card was inspired by the ornament I created seen in this post.

Two branches, one pear (masking branch), pear leaves and sentiment (Rockin’ Red – Catherine Pooler ink) were stamped (using color recipe links below) on Solar White Classic Crest cardstock (Neenah). 

The quail, two pears, and two more leaves were cut out with Solar White Classic Crest cardstock (Neenah) and the coordinating KSS SVG cut files and then stamped and added to the card with pop dots. Card edge was inked with Rich Cocoa (Memento).

The base of the card is the metallic cardstock – Mars from Stardream.
