Cheapo Dies - Christmas is Coming!

Happy Sunday All!
Today I'm sharing a fun holiday creation using a sweet die from the Cheapo Dies Store.  
We all enjoy decorating our homes for the holidays and I thought this beautiful flock of cardinals would like a little holiday dressing up of their home too.  

The latest release die I have used is the 'Winter Birdhouse'.

A few various colored cuts, a fine tipped bottle of glue & a pair of 'snips' and the decorating begins.  Here are the steps I took on today's Winter Birdhouse.

My first cut was from white cardstock.  Then I traced out around the metal die, did a little cutting/gluing ...

and now I have a snow covered brown birdhouse.

Next came the birds ...

How about a little decorating on the front door ...


The Creative Expressions - Sue Wilson Festive Collection Snowflake corner die (#CED3019) adorn the upper corners of my old SU designer paper and a little red/white Bakers twine was strung through a paper pierced hole to hang & adorn the top of the house.
