Hello! I’m back with another Scrappy Tails Crafts inspiration. This will be the last Design Team post for Scrappy Tails. It was a wonderful six months and I’m extremely grateful to Sabrina Leavell, the owner of Scrappy Tails, for the opportunity to represent her company.
For this card, I used the beautiful Layering Cardinal die set. This die set has all the elements to create two cardinals and a branch with berries. I die cut them out using just scraps of colored cardstock and used copic to color the image to add dimension.
For the pine needles, I used the Christmas Essentials die set, The pine needles were part of a cluster which included the a bell, I just did some selective die-cutting to separate the pine needles from the bell. I used scrap green cardstock in two colors of green to die-cut them out.
For the background, I used on of the lovely papers from the Winter Flurries paper pad and cut it to 4.25″X5.5″ and placed it on a side folding card base of the same size. I splattered the whole panel with silver watercolor, then I adhered the side facing cardinal, the branches and leaves on the top half of the background. I then added a 1/2″ frame cut out of navy cardstock which was also splattered and backed with acetate and foam tape.
Next, I assembled the front facing cardinal , cluster of leaves and the branch before splattering it with silver watercolor. Then I adhered it to the bottom half of the navy frame. I trimmed off the excess hanging off from the sides.
I finished it off by adding a sentiment from the English Christmas Village stamp set white heat embossed on the same navy cardstock.
I hope that you were inspired by the project today.
Have a wonderful Christmas holiday and all the best!
‘Til next time!
