Here is the result:
- Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
- Background Panel: (5⅜” x 4⅛”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
- The sentiment, Merry & Bright, from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set was stamped with Real Red ink.
- The panel was then dry-embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.
- Accent Mat: (4⅛” x 2⅝”) Real Red cardstock.
- Under Rectangle: (4” x 2½”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
- Overlay Rectangle: (4” x 2½”) Pine Tree Branch patterned piece of Vellum from the retired Winter Wonderland Specialty Vellum Paper pack.
- Focal Image – Birds: Shimmery White cardstock.
- The Bird image from the Perched in a Tree stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the Silicone Craft Sheet.
- The Shimmery White cardstock was pressed onto the image transferring the “mirror” reflection of the Bird.
- The Bird image was also then stamped onto the Shimmery White cardstock, without re-inking the stamp, for a 2nd Generation (stamped off) image.
- Once the inked images were good and dry, the Birds were water colored with Real Red and Crumb Cake inks using the Water Painter Brush.
- Additional highlights/shadows were added with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend Marker.
- When completely dry, the Birds were fussy cut with Paper Snips.
All elements were adhered to the card front to match the sketch. The Birds were popped-up with Dimensionals.
