Heartfelt Creations Christmas Cardinal


I have a simple and elegant card to share with you today using some of my Heartfelt Creations stamps. The BG paper that I used, was perfect to mimic the pine needles.



HCPC 3350 Large Cardinal Pine Bough
HCPC 3335 Elegant Snowflake Medallions
HCD 705 Holly Ornament Die Cut

Stamp the large Cardinal with Pine Bough onto Cryogen white paper. Cut using the Nestabilities Grand Labels 4. Color with copics. Use Pine Needles Distress ink to edge all of the paper. Add a few highlights on the pine needles using Ultrafine Flower Soft in pine. Stamp, emboss and cut "petals" for a small snowflake using the Elegant Snowflake Medallions and Holly Ornament Die Cut. Place the assembled snowflake over a ribbon bow.

Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations Blog every Wednesday to see the incredible inspiration! Also, next week will be our big Black Friday promotion - with the last release of the year. I promise, you will not want to miss it!
