Whimsical Cardinals

I’m not sure if I should admit it or not but….I still have a few Holiday (Christmas) cards to send out.

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.
