Cardinal Christmas // Hero Arts

I'm stopping in today with a Christmas card and deets on a new challenge!

To start today's card off, I stamped the Woodgrain Bold Prints by Lia using Soft Granite on Fog Gray Simon Says Stamp cardstock. I then stamped a sentiment from Holiday Messages and Tags on a white cardstock panel, heat embossed it in gold, and then gave the panel a ribbon edge.

I was totally inspired by Yana Smakula when slipping my embossed banner through the Branch Wreath die, cut out of kraft. The wreath was topped off with some die cut vellum holly leaves, a gold bow, and some gems.

Finally, I created my bird from the gorgeous Color Layering Cardinal - I stamped the first layer in Fresh Peach, second in Pale Tomato, and topped it off with Red Royal. It's hard to tell the difference between the first and second layer, but it does add a bit of detail. I stamped the feet and eyes/beak in black, then die cut my cardinal and adhered him to the card case.

That's all for me today! Have a blessed day!
