Today I have a handmade Christmas card for you that I made with the new Beauty of the Season stamp set which s a pre-order for the month of July/August. This set is featured in the new Holiday catalog that is coming out in September. So the details for this card… I stamped the Cardinal with Momento ink on whisper white cardstock. I used the Cherry Cobbler and Smokey Slate sets of Blendabilities Markers. I outlined the wing of the cardinal with the darker gray and colored over the cheery cobbler blendabilities. The beak of the cardinal is shaded with pumpkin pie blendabilities. Last but not least I used red Dazzling Diamonds to add a little sparkle to the berries on the tree branch. The cardinal is layered onto a piece of cherry cobbler cardstock. The card base is a piece of brushed metallic gold with a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock. The card front is a piece of gold foil cardstock that has been embossed with the stylish stripes emobssing folder. Time to get started on those Holiday cards!! Here is the information on the Beauty of the Season stamp set. Enjoy!
