Mojo Christmas Cardinal



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! It is cool, rainy morning here in southwest Missouri! Ohhhh Fall, How I LOVE thee!!!

Today's card is made with the Mojo Monday Sketch.

I started by pulling out this awesome "A Christmas Cardinal" set. Love it! I stamped the cardinal with timber brown stazon onto some watercolor paper. I colored the image with my aqua painter. Pure madness took over after that as I decided to cut out this baby!! LOL!! I cut out a circle and scallop circle with my nesties and cuttlebug. I mounted the cardinal to these with a few dimensionals. I then made up the rest of the card, base is real red, followed by whisper white and the DS paper is from the Christmas Cocoa Speciality pack from the mini.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same set, onto some scrap white and used the modern label punch to punch it out. the image circle is mounted with dimensionals and then the sentiment was added. The ribbon is some non SU from my stash. I added three silver sticky rhinestone thingys! After the card was all together, I used added crystal effects to the berries and the cardinals eye.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
