Karen here. 2020 and 2021 have been challenging and somewhat crazy years, so I’m here to post a Happy New Year card with hopes that 2022 will be looking up. The adorable Parrot is one of my favorite die sets, so I decided to highlight it for today’s post.
I love creating these fun little critters designed by Joset! It reminds me of putting together paper dolls as a child. So relaxing.
After cutting the pieces out with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, I put them roughly how they will be when I put them together. It helps me to try to figure out which pieces will be which colors.
I then colored the pieces with these colors of Distress Ink and put them together using some fun googly eyes.
From there, I just put it on a card. 🙂 The sentiment is part of the Cozy Days stamp set. I cut it out with a Stitched Circle and hid part of it behind the look up panel that is part of the G45 paper set I used.
Wishing you all the very happiest and healthiest New Year!
Craftily yours, Karen
