When I saw this stamp set in the new Holiday Mini Catalog I knew I would get it, and that it would be perfect for class. We had a cardinal set a few years back, and this one is even nicer. We have cardinals that come to our back yard, the male of course is the nice red color and the female is almost grayish, and mean, oh my gosh they pick on the other birds.
So anyway, this is a card for my 10/10/20 Christmas card class, and this time the gate-fold is so the card folds up instead of like a gate.
Stamp set: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Bordering Blue, Always Artichoke, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Riding Hood Red, Bordering Blue, More Mustard, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Misc: Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon, white gel pen, ticket corner punch
I also did some direct to paper on the card, just by dragging the Riding Hood Red Pad on the paper, it makes it look leathery.
I also had a question from Mary, she asked why I didn't just run 5 pieces of cardstock through the 5 Point 3-D star die at one time. I don't like to do that when you are using a die that scores. The more paper you add, the less score lines will be visible and usable on the top pieces of paper. So I would rather do one at a time, and get them nice the first time, then run a bunch through and they don't score properly. It is totally up to you though, give it a try. This is just how I do it. Thanks for the question Mary. I feel like Dr. Oz on Oprah, taking questions…ha!
Anyhow, have a super Friday. TGIF, and thanks for stopping in!
What a gorgeous card, I love the landscape gate fold!
