    Die cut three robins in white card and colour. Mat a 7cm x 11.5cm piece of Christmas spotty paper to the left of a 10.5cm x 14.5cm white blank in line with the top. Add a 4.5cm x 10cm piece of brown patterned paper to the spotty section. Mat the robins vertically on a piece of white card 4cm x 9cm and stick to the brown panel. Add some felt holly leaves, gems and a sentiment sticker to finish.
