12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 5



I was busy with my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack yesterday, so I didn't get this posted when I wanted to. Here's the card for this week:


Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of chipboard with the Big Shot and the Scallop Oval Frame die.
2. Layer the Finial Press embossing folder with a piece of Naturals White cardstock (5 1/4"x4") inside with the following sandwich: Multi Purpose platform on tab 2 ~ Embossing folder with paper inside ~ chipboard frame (centred over paper in embossing folder) ~ Cutting Plate.
3. Sponge the embossed frame with Old Olive ink.
4. Stamp the cardinal image from "A Cardinal Christmas" inside the frame with Soft Suede ink.
5. Use a Blender Pen and classic inks (Ruby Red, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crushed Curry) to colour the cardinal.
6. Use a Stamp-a-ma-Jig  and Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the sentiment from "Christmas Greetings".
7. Tie a piece of Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon around the Naturals White cardstock.
8. Adhere to a Soft Suede card base (4 1/4"x11").
