ID: MC Sept/15 - Cardinal - ECD Best Wishes - Christmas Waves a Magic Wand -  card
size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h

Created: September 28, 2015

I'm using one of the newest dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD)  "Best Wishes" die also available through  Quietfire Design  HERE and an embossing folder "Sprig" and the "Cardinal" stamp and "Soft Finish" cardstock.

And the Quietfire Design quote stamp and design element stamp on the inside.

("Christmas Waves a Magic Wand..."); ("Deck the Halls..." 3pce set) 


Side folded my white card. Embossed the front (ECD "Sprig") embossing folder.

I created a silhouette image of the cardinal (no fussy cutting...) and cut from the smooth side of the Soft Finish cardstock (works nicely with watercolors as well as Pan Pastels) with my electronic cutter. Painted with ArtQuest palettes.

Die cut the "Best Wishes" from the textured side of the soft finish cardstock and used red and green Pan Pastels.

Adhered a piece of gold/glitter variegated Sari ribbon, then my cardinal and then my sentiment.

On the right side, stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. 

Stamped the holly inking with the mowed lawn and "Fired Brick". Repeated for the right corner.

Added faux stitching using a red metallic gel pen
