The image this week from Designed 2 Delight is a set of cardinals – the perfect bird for a Christmas card.
I colored the image using copic markers and then using a branch punch from Martha Stewart I made a wreath to circle the image using three different shades of green paper.
I based my card on this sketch from Card Patterns Sketch # 96:
The background DP is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder several times to fill in the open areas of the cardstock. I added a bright red ribbon to tie in the digital stamp image.
