Christmas Robin

I thought I would share this card I've made for Christmas using craft card. I took the card base (a 6x6 craft card) and put the front half into an embossing folder from Crafters Companion, after embossing it I lightly blended some Vintage Photo distress ink over the raised bits. I then stamped the image from Stampendous onto some craft card and coloured with spectrum noir pencils, cutting it out with an oval spellbinders die and blending around the edges, again with Vintage Photo. I then added some polar white Flowersoft to the tops of the berries and the branch. I then finished it off by adding the poinsettia which was made with a Marianne die.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

I'm a great fan of kraft card and it has been used to excellent effect here with the lovely robin stamp and the embossing.

Oh thats a lovely Robin Sue. So beautifully coloured and your background looks gorgeous. Love the flower soft on the berries and branches, looks so realistic. Pretty poinsettia too! Michelle
