Christmas Cardinal

Carmens-swap-card  Today's card uses more traditional hues of red & green – handsome hunter and real red.  Carmen's swap card uses another Holiday Mini stamp set – A Cardinal Christmas.  The Sanded background stamp is used on the vanilla cardstock in the background.  She's coloured in the cardinal and then added a styled silver ribbon slide from the Hodgepodge Hardware.  There's glitter in the slide to add a bit more "bling".  You might not be able to see the crystal effects added to add a bit of glisten to the berries and the bird's eye.

One of the key benefits to taking part in a demonstrator card swap is getting samples with stamp sets that I don't personally own – thanks to Tracey, though, I can share this inspiration with you all!
