DD82 CAS Cardinal Christmas- Card #3

Hi Again Stampers! 

Here is card #3 that I created using this week’s DD82 DynamicDuos Bright and Cheery Color Combination of Primrose Petals and Gumball Green (here is the post for card #1 and card #2).

I hope these cards have inspired you to create a project with the two colors and link it up at the Dynamic Duos site- we would love to see your creations!!

While I have the actual stamp set, I decided to use My Digital Studio (MDS) to create this quick, easy CAS card:

Open a blank 8.5x11 page in MDS and insert the image from Winter Memories (I re-sized the image a bit).  Also add the sentiment from Endless Wishes, remembering to leave enough room to be able to cut out the image using the Oval Collection Framelits™.

Print the images onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and color the cardinals and the bow using the Primrose Petals Stampin’ Write marker, the wreath using the Gumball Green Stampin’ Write marker and add a few shadows to the wood paneling/sled using a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker.  Use the Chalk Marker to add a few highlights to the wreath. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut out the sled image. 
Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and add to a piece of Primrose Petals cardstock and adhere to the Gumball Green card base.

Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the triple 3/8” Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon bow to the corner and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Winter Memories, Endless Wishes (MDS version-both current)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write Marker- Primrose Petals, Gumball Green, Chalk Marker 

Paper: Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Ovals Collection Framelits™, Hexagon Punch, Pearls, 3/8” Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by- you are all such an encouragement to me!  Again, top by and visit us at The Dynamic Duos- we hope to see your DD82 “Bright and Cheery” creation thisweek!!

A lovely image, coloured to perfection! Love the white-highlights--I need to remember that little touch.
