Hi everyone, it is almost the end of the week and that means (at least in my house) hands up for the weekend!
I wanted to share an adorable Christmas card featuring this beautiful cardinal from the
Winter Birds stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs.
I began by stamping out the images from the stamp set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo
Black ink and using Copic markers to color in these. I used the ScanNCut to cut these images out. I had a little trouble with the
berries but nothing that a little tape could not fix.
Copic Markers Combination
Bird: R59, R39, R29, R27, R24, R22, E39, W33
Branch: E29, E27, E25, E23
Berries: R27, R39
For the background, I took a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using a blender brush.
Once it was dry, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die set by Newton’s Nook Designs.
And then, I added the Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone over the Starfield Stencil for a touch of sparkle to the background.
Once the background was dry, I adhered the images with foam tape and then added it on top of a red scalloped
rectangle panel. I debated on adding the sentiment to the front of the card but I chose to stamp the sentiment on the inside
and not cover up any of the gorgeous sparkle on the card front.
This card was inspired by the current Inky Paws Challenge titled “Snowy Day”, check out the design teams inspiration
