Little Robin Redbreast

These are the cards that I made for my Mum and Dad this year, I made them one each as Dad is now in a nursing home.


Both cards are very similar, I have used two gorgeous Robin images - sorry I don't know where they came from.  The papers are from the Docrafts Little Red Robin Collection and the sentiments are LOTV stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder. The punched border is an X-cut punch and the ivy is a Die'sire die cut.  The poinsettias have been made with a Spellbinders die and the paper bows are a Lil' Inker die.

This is Dad's card:


and this is Mum's:


I have decorated the inside of both cards the same:
