A Quick Quirky Reminder. Christmas In July:Use Die-cut and or Punches

Reminder Time! I know it's hot, and thinking of Christmas is  a bit hard when there's no biting wind, rain or snow, but there's still a week left in this Christmas In July- Use your Die-cuts and/or Punches challenge, so there's still time for all that to happen! 
Of course if you're lucky enough to live in hot places when it is Christmas, you must be used to it by now so, get crafting and come and join in over on Quirky Crafts..
 Stitchy Bear is Sponsoring the challenge, so there's prizes to be had!!
Here's my card...I was going to show you the other bunny, but he hopped off before I could take a picture and I haven't seen him in days! (I'm guessing he's buried under a load of toppled over crafty goods somewhere...anyway. 
This is Four Calling Birds, by Delicious Doodles, from Stitchy Bears Digi store. It did start off on a larger card, but it was not my normal thickness and was sooo thin it kept falling over, (bit like me when.... oh never mind) so that was snipped off and re-fixed to a thicker smaller card. The strip of red dotty paper was from a Forever friends Christmas set and was originally higher up the card, but it doesn't look too bad where  it ended up!
Outside I've used Punches. Corner Punch, Holly and Berry Punch and the Leaf punch, which also embosses. I've coloured using both the computer and Promarkers and covered it all with Stickles Glitter Glue. The holly paper you can just see behind was a freebie from a crafting mag. I've added a peel off Happy Christnas in silver to go with the silver miri card I used to layer the birds.
Inside I used another punch on the money pocket side and a Spellbinders die-cut on the other side. Papers are all bits from my stash. That's it!! Pop over to Quirky Crafts and Join in!!
