Christmas Cardinal

>> Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Hi Everyone! Jennifer here to let you know that DRS Designs will be featuring their Christmas stamps very soon. Have you thought about your Christmas cards yet? Today I'm sharing one of my recent favorites.

I started by coloring the Cardinal on Branch image (856M) with Copic Markers. I layered it on red and green cardstock as shown. Then I stamped the Small "Merry Christmas" (520D) in 1 line on a white cardstock banner with red ink. This was adhered to the bottom of the image.

Next, I focused on the card base. I created a note card that measures 3.5" x 5" from dark green cardstock. I added texture to it by stamping the Large Original Plaid Stamp (641P) in both directions using Versamark ink. The image was adhered to the center of the card base and then I added a red and white plaid bow underneath the sentiment. I just love how well all of the colors on this card coordinated! Hope you like it as much as I do! 

Thanks for stopping by!
