Glittered Clip-Art Bird Cards

Glittered Clip-Art Bird Cards

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2009

Introduction

Make handwritten notes even more special with cards you create yourself. Print our clip-art bird design onto card stock, and cover them with glitter. Use a limited palette to yield an elegant look.

For a lasting display, this winter tree scene can also be glued to a wooden panel (see sources below). The snowy ground is a layer of white paper, also printed with the design, and covered in clear glitter before the silvery branches were added.
