Little Robin Redbreast

Hi Fellow crafters, friends and visitors, Jennifer back again,
For today's card I have chosen another Christmas card made using Imagination Craft's beautiful robin decoupage stamp set and of course some fabby sparkle medium !!   I really love using this as you get an instant background as a base for your central image.   Well let's get started.

Make a base card from red cardstock and matt some white card onto it leaving a small border of the red showing.   Take a piece of shiny green card  cut slightly smaller than the white.   Lay the holly embossable on top and spread the silver sparkle medium over it with the palette knife.   Remove embossable and leave to dry.   When dry, matt this onto the white card.

Cut an oblong of white card approx. 2" x 5" (sorry I still work in feet and inches lolls!!).   Next cut a piece of red card slightly smaller and using the dots embossable, run through an embossing machine.   Matt the red onto the white oblong and fix to the left-hand side of the base card.

Take some white card and stamp  the main image of the robin onto it using a Versamark pad and heat emboss using silver embossing powder.   Stamp a further five images and colour with the Vintage Pearly Palette.   Cut out and 3D these onto the first image, using silicone glue.   Use the Bundled Sage Distress Ink on the background of the image and colour the holly berries with the red from the Vintage Pearly Palette.

Fix the main 3D image to the base card with the left-hand edge over the red card, and add a red ribbon bow to the top right of the main image. 

That's it , that's all for now until the next blog.   Have a good week all.  I'll be back soon.
