Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a card a I made for 2 challenges. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try and I combined it with the challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.
The Crazy 4 Challenge is "Punch Happy", drag out the punches, use at least one. My cardinal is made with punches, I used my 1-3/4 inch circle punch and my 1 inch circle, for the body and wing. I used the boho blossom punch for the tail feathers and for the black part on the face. I used the photo corner punch for the beak.
I used the sizzlits little leaves die with some wild wasabi textured card stock for the leaves the cardinal is sitting on. the cardinal is mounted to the front of the card with a pop dot.
I strayed just a bit from the sketch, I think I missed a layer. The base of the card is real red and that is followed with some whisper white and then the chocolate chip DS paper is from the Merry Moments pack the layer across the top is made up of real red card stock and the DS paper on that is from the Christmas Cocoa Speciality Paper. I then used a snowflake embossing folder for the two squares.
The sentiment comes from the "Christmas Greeting" stamp set and is stamped in real red onto white and then matted with real red card stock. I used the curly label punch on the ends of both pieces. I added three buttons, one to the sentiment and two in the bottom corner. I used some white floss in the centers of the buttons. The buttons are some I had in my button tin, a huge round container of buttons I have had forever.
Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
