I made this for Mercy's Sketch Challenge. There are some awesome cards on this site. Be sure and check it out.
This was completed about midnight last night. I couldn't sleep - and when you can't sleep, what do you do? STAMP, of course! It's getting down to the wire with me now on completing my Christmas cards but I wanted to make a special one for a lady that bought some cards from me this summer to sell in her baby shop. I think it came out ok, but (as usual) I would have changed a couple of things (if I hadn't been doing it at midnight).
All you need (well, almost) to complete the card is a bottle of Black Pepper and a can of Lysol!!!!
I matted Real Red on black after running it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder in my Cuddlebug. I also ran part of the Real Red piece at the bottom through the same folder. The patterned paper is Real Red DP. The image of the cardinal is from Rubber Stampede and was colored and blended with Prismapencils and I then added some glitter to the branches. I punched out the snowflake with a MS punch and placed a button in the center, tied a piece of white floss in the holes and attached it with a glue dot. I cut the red scalloped circle with my Nestabilities but the white circles became a challenge. I didn't have anything that would make this size circle.... SO....The white circle that the image is stamped on was traced using the top of a black pepper bottle and the larger white circle was made using the top from a can of Lysol!!!!!! Each layer of this was popped up on dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by...........
