Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 7

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.)

For Day 7's tag, I used my Shaker Shapes: Ornament dies with
my PTI Songbirds dies.


I used some aqua mist and stamper's select white cardstock.
For the Songbird, I diecut him from some white cardstock that I'd stamped on with
the addition stamps from the PTI Tinsel & Tags MIM kit.
I diecut the leaves from some music notes patterned paper.
The 7 was diecut using PTI's Book Print Number dies.

I loved the looks of the sheet music leaves on the aqua mist cardstock,
so I went with that for my coordinating card.
I stamped my sentiment using a stamp from Reverse Confettti's Seasonal Sentiments.


I diecut my bird from some Bazzill Basics Gold Foil cardstock.
Here's a close up of the gold foil bird.


Thanks for looking!
