I pulled out my Christmas papers and decided to use this oh so charming Mistletoe papers!
For the card, I stamped the gorgeous cardinal stamp from JustRite's Christmas Treasures set right onto a pice of cherry veneer paper. I very lightly shaded some of the areas with a Copic marker, cut out and added some liquid pearls for the berries and punched out holly leaves from the MS border punch. I stamped the image again, this time onto an ivory c.c and focused on the cardinal, colouring him with Copics and a sparkling Spica black eye. Cut him out and adhered to the birdhouse with foam dimensionals. The oval was created with a classic Spellbinder nestability and I also embossed it with the tan mat and then shaded in with the lightest Copic "Chiffon" on the raised part. Al of this focal point was added to the layered panels.
The button from Jenni Bowlin has a length of PTI silk ribbon through it and I added some MS larger holly leaves.
That is it!
Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great Cinco de Mayo!
Here is a clos up of Mr. cardinal ;)
