CAS Bird on a Branch

I had this little bird and branch cut out and decided I would do one more card for my set. I always tell my gal pal, Donna Pheland that when I make a CAS card I feel like I have sent my child to school naked. This is no exception and the only thing special about it is that is was done in under three minutes.  I will enter it in the IO challenge just because it is a random draw and I might win.

IO Bird on a Branch Die - DIE161-N

Here is the last card for my gift set using the same layout.  I put some clothes on this card so I like it much better.  I used the same composition but switched the dies. It is nice to have some Christmas Thank-you's on hand.  I ended up with 14 cards so I am ready go on Saturday. I'll bet you are glad you don't have to see another card with the same composition.  I think I have exhausted it,,,,, for awhile anyway.

Here they are all tucked in their envelopes waiting for Saturday.  I could not get all of them in picture but  I think you get the idea. No extra postage required.  Now all I have to do is make the gift bag.


  1. Such an awesome assortment. And to think they will all go through the mail. I'm so hesitant to do any dimensional flowers for fear they will get stuck in the mail. I love the winter card with the poinsettia, it's just stunning!!!

  2. Beautiful cards Kathy! I love the pretty. Have a great day!

  9. I have been looking at your post about this super special gift for your friend, but have only had time to comment now. You are an inspiration to me, really. This elegant gift that you made is truly something of yourself that you are giving. Very classy and your set of cards has motivated me to make some for gifts too. Thanks again Kathy.
