Beauty of the Season Cardinal Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Soft Sky and Garden Green.  I used the Beauty of the Season stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog to create this Christmas card.  I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the cardinal image.  I then used a blender pen to color the cardinal and the berries.  I used a sponge dauber to lightly sponge a Soft Sky background.  The frames are die cut from the Labels Collection framelits to create a frame for the cardinal image.  The background layer I embossed with an inked up Woodgrain embossing folder .  I inked it up with Soft Suede to emphasize the grain.

Stampin Up Beauty of the Season Christmas cardI added sparkle to the berries and the cardinal with red Dazzling Details.  I also embellished with rhinestones I colored with a red Sharpie.  I used Linen Thread for the bow.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments for this challenge and show us what you can do with these colors.

  3. It’s hard not to think cardinal when the colour challenge is for red this time of the year, isn’t it? I love the way you’ve coloured it with your blender pens and given the colour such dimension. Those red sparkling rhinstones are a great final touch.


  4. I have loved this set but did not get it. Your card makes me wish I had. Very pretty!
