Congrats to Patty, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS301)! I spent a long time in her wonderful gallery and finally chose her Christmas Cardinal to case. I kept the Christmas theme w/ cardinals and the red and white colors but I left off the chocolate color, used different images and used different dies and embossing folder.
The images are new from Our Daily Bread designs. The cardinal ornament was stamped once with the red chalk ink and again with the black ink. The red version was die cut w/ a circle die and after coloring the other cardinals I cut them out and attached them on top of the red version. I die cut a another piece of white w/ the splendid circle die for the backing layer and dotted it w/ a white Pearl pen. An embossing folder was used on the final layer, a wide red grosgrain ribbon added then everything attached to my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
Congrats again, Patty, and thanks so much for stopping by!
