Wassail Cardinal

Good Afternoon! I had the day off today, and decided to pull out some of my new stamps...this is Our Daily Bread design's new February release, "Sing for Joy!" The set features this handsome cardinal image, a pinebough/pinecone image, and two Bible verses: Matthew 6:26 and Psalm 95:1. This new set, as well as three other bird related sets, will be available February 1st.


I began by stamping my image onto a thick white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) then colored it with numerous Copic markers. I used a Spellbinder's Label I die to cut the image panel, adding a May Art twine bow (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) and Basic Gray Wassail button treatment to the corner.

The card base is retired Stampin' Up Cranberry Crisp cardstock (thanks to JoAnn, my Stampin' Up Biddie leader and buddy, for letting me have her last package!!!), one of my favorites! I layered the base with a couple of patterns from the Basic Grey 6 X 6" Wassail paper pad.

I used more of the May Arts twine (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) to stitch up the side of one panel to add some extra out-doorsy interest.

Our Daily Bread designs will be hosting a blog hop on February 1st, complete with prizes! Be sure you check it out at the ODBD blog! Thanks for stopping by!
