Chickadee Card ~ December Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly Technique Blog Hop for December.  This month we are featuring Accents of White.... using a White Gel Pen to add accents to our projects! 

The blog in front of mine belongs to Darlys Recker. Simply click the links in each post to hop to the next blog. How's that for easy!!!

For my card I decided to use a new stamp set I just got. I also love the paper from the Wonderland paper pack and it came together from there. I stamped the bird on Rosemary cardstock with black ink. I added accents with the White Gel Pen to the bird and leaves. The card design comes from one of our How-to Books called Make It from Your Heart. It shows you a cutting guide and samples. So easy!
