I love this graceful cardinal image from the “Warmth & Wonder” set.
The arched top on the red card’s image panel was made by trimming off three sides from a panel made with a Nestabilities Labels #10 die. (I used this particular die as it was “handy”, but I’m pretty sure just a regular oval shaped die would have worked just as well.)
The stamp was colored with SU markers, stamped and then shaded with Copics. A teeny tiny bit of Stickles was added to the berries on both cards.
There is an elegant deer image in this set, too.
To play along in this week’s Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers to “tear or distress”, one of the cards is distressed using SU’s Creamy Caramel ink.
Whether left clean or distressed, I love this embossing folder paired with the simplicity of the deer image and sentiment.
One of the cards follows the sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches #109 Challenge this week.
This is one of my favorite embossing folders from SU. Love the look of the texture right on the image and sentiment.
To add some sparkle on the final card, Stickles was added around the deer’s neck.
