NAC98 Beauty of the Season

Hi Again Stampers! 

This is the third card that I had a chance to create this weekend and I decided to use the NAC98 ColorChallenge along with the CCC14 Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge :-)

Again, I know most of you may have already stopped by the challenge sites, but if not, I encourage you to do so- inspiration abounds!!

To create this quick card:

Ink the cardinal stamp from the new stamp set, Beauty of the Season using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the body of the bird and berries using the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities™ Collection, the bird’s legs and beak using the Stampin’ Write Blushing Bride marker and the branches using the Blendabilities™ Light Crumb Cake marker.  

 Lightly sponge the image using a Sponge Dauber using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Stampin’ Write Crumb Cake marker. 

Cut the image out using the Big Shot™ along with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ (also cutting the same size oval from a piece of Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler cardstock).   Cut the Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler ovals in half and layer behind the bird image.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim, and mount onto a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Add the 1” Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain Ribbon strip to the card front and adhere the cardinal oval image panel.  Add the 1” Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain Ribbon double bow to the corner.

Mount the entire panel onto a Whisper White card base and add the layered sentiment to finish off the card.
