Yuletide Greetings Card

Started working on Christmas cards. I absolutely love this stamp. It's "To You and Yours" and is a Close To My Heart stamp set. Cardinals are my favorite bird so that is the main reason why I love this stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color in my image with ShinHan art alcohol markers.

I used 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" colonial white card bases with envelopes. I picked the music sheet B&T Duos Paper and Ruby cardstock. Put the silver shimmer trim. I stamped the cardinal image onto white daisy cardstock and colored with the ShinHan markers. I used R11 Carmine for cardinal, YR24 Marigold as his beak, R5 Cherry Pink for the berries, GY235 holly leaves, BR96 branch, B262 color of eyes and used the black to darken the black on the face. I used a spellbinder diecut. Stamped the greeting in Ruby ink. Place two gold bling gems in corner of card! I also stamped on the corner of the envelope with Ruby ink.

I stamped the inside of the card also with Ruby ink!

Well I hoped you like me card!
Until next time & Happy Stamping
