ID: DT Nov/14 - eCut Cardinal - Christmas Waves card
size: 7"w x 5"h

Created: November 20, 2014

As soon as I saw this eCut file from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store, I knew I wanted to use it right away. Love all the elements...

I'm also using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design


Side folded my white cardstock. Since I'm using an 8.5 x 11" piece of cardstock, I had to splice another piece to the inside... (which I did after doing the stamping and coloring).

I ungrouped the elements in the Studio file, cut them, adding a few more sprigs of pine and also cutting a shadow layer for the sentiment (offset function). Colored the branches while on the mat using Distress mini pads "Forest Moss" and then some "Crushed Olive".

For the Cardinal, applied various Distress reds direct to paper, then a bit of sponging. Glued the elements together.

Applied Versafine "Toffee" to the word and embossed with "Queen's Gold" embossing  powder. Sponged "Worn Lipstick" to the shadow layer, then ran through my embossing machine with Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots", hit the high points with "Aged Mahogany", Adhered both layers together.

On the front of the card, used a Memory Box "Snowflake Flurries" stencil which I lightly sprayed with Krylon "Easy Tac" (to keep my stencil in place) and sponged "Tumbled Glass". Moved the stencil ass needed.

Adhered my eCut elements, over and under lapping. Masked off the top and bottom of the quote with masking tape and inked with Versafine Black Onyx, removed masking and stamped.

Added dots of Marvy "Puffy Velvet" white and heat activated to mimic snow.

As a final touch, put lines of Quickie Glue on the stencilled snowflakes and sprinkled with Stickles "Star Dust" glitter.


On the inside stamped the pine boughs (Old Island Rubber) using the Moss & Olive, misting with water and stamping. Repeated for the 2nd bough. Then stamped the bottom of the quote, masking the top section and using the black.
