A Card - 12 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Hop

We will be sharing newly and previously created
 Christmas projects for 12 Days and today is Day4
Hope you can join us in the fun!

Hopefully you just arrived from Patricia's Creative Diva's Blog
If not, and you wish to join us, please start with our host Sylvia HERE

 Today I created a very simple card using one of the newest dies/embossing combos from Sizzix
and have a little tutorial on how I created or how to make a card out of a die.
I did not embellish a lot... my intent is to show the "how to create a card from a die".
 Please excuse such dark pictures... I thought I had fixed with Picasa but now I can see it did not take...

1-Fold piece of cardstock intended to be your card in half and place on die at a level high enough on the design/shape.  A place where it will create a substantial fold.  (click on pictures to see larger detail).
 2-Run through die cutting machine
3-This is what your "card" looks like.
 4- Die cut a single shape and embossed with matching embossing envelope. (picture not shown)
5- Adhere cut and embossed shape aligning it on top of  the previously created shape card.
I stamped a sentiment inside and inked the entire bird (and a bit inside the card) with distress ink.
And added a little tag tied around with olive green hemp.
