Christmas Cardinal

Only one more week to go until it's Christmas Eve - where has this year gone!!!  For todays post for One Crazy Stamper I have used the beautiful Christmas Cardinal from Just Rite Stamps.

For this card front, I stamped the image three separate times - the first with brown ink on the gold cardstock which is the base - I cut out the oval in the center of this base to create the opening for the blue background.  The second image was stamped and embossed with brown embossing powder on the same gold cardstock.  After the embossing cooled, I rubbed Old Gold Viva Decor Inka Gold over the raised pattern, then fussy cut the resulting frame which is raised up with pop dots.  The final stamped images are the cardinal and sentiment frame. I colored the cardinal with Copics, fussy cut,  and then attached to the card front.  Sakura's white Glaze pen added the final highlights to the berrries, and the snowflake dots on the blue central oval.
