Beautiful Season

This traditional card was created for my brother and sister-in-law.  This set has such an adorable black-capped chickadee image.  I cut a piece of Shimmery White paper using the Memory Box Cherise Label dies.  The image was stamped in StazOn Black and colored with Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol.  Crystal Effects was applied to the berries.  The focal image was adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler then Brushed Gold and popped up.  The olive background paper was embossed with a Sizzix Starry Night embossing folder and adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler.  Everything was mounted to an olive green card.

A close up of the pretty bird.

Merry Christmas was inked in VersaMark then Old Olive and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  I found the pine and holly stamp in my stash and thought it was a nice compliment to the front of the card.  It was stamped in StazOn Black and colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

I hope you'll find some inspiration from my designs.  Please feel free to 'pin' them for later in the year for when you start your holiday cards.  Have a wonderful day.
