Outfitting the Animals

As the temperatures outside have continued to drop, the wild animals have started taking shelter in our stables and barn. The Lady Commander of Copics has taken pity on a few of the smaller ones that don’t have fur and started making tiny little winter clothes for them to wear. At first I thought she was crazy, but after I saw the first bird outfitted in its new winter gear, I had to admit it was pretty cute.
The bird was cut out from the 3 Birds On Parade cartridge, whereas the phrase came from the Winter Woodland cartridge. The Brrrr and pieces of the bird’s clothes were embossed using the Cuttlebug for some extra texture. I also sponged some white ink onto the bird’s clothes to make it look “frosty”. The background paper is from some old Recollections paper pack from Michaels. I added the snowflake ribbon and called it done.
The inside was stamped with a sentiment from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. I added the “warm” using an alphabet set.

This tweet card will be entered into the following challenges:
Cricut Cardz Challenge #121: Speaking of Christmas

Paper Playtime Challenge #89: Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge ##162: Flutter By
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge: Three R’s (ribbon, red, Recollections paper)

Although it looked extremely cute, the little guy couldn’t really fly in his winter outfit, resorting to just hopping around. It could be my imagination, but I’m fairly certain I heard him let out a long sigh after numerous attempts.
