WSC100 ~*HOLIDAY WISHES*~ Christmas Cardinal card

I so wanted to get up yesterday and make some cards for World Card Making DAy.. my arm/shoulder wasn't having any part of that.. so most of the day I relaxed and tried to keep the pain at bay.

Late last night.. since it's 1 am I guess I have to call it last night.. haha.. I felt better and decided to come up and make something using Beate's WSC100 layout

I pulled out one of my all time favorite Stampin' UP! stamp sets. It's retired now.

I stamped the main image in Memento brown ink, colored with Copic markers. Stamped off the poinsettia in Always Artichoke twice, then stamped onto some white card stock and then stamped the saying on top of it in the same brown ink I stamped the cardinal image in. I punched it out using a 1 3/8" circle punch, then a 1 1/2" circle punch, then the scallop circle that was then put back in the punch to punch again to make the scallops pointed (I used a thin strip of cardstock glued to the back of the scallop circle to be able to control where it was in the punch so I could line it up and then punch) ~ I used some Red Riding Hood Taffeta ribbon (ret).

The card stock used is Always Artichoke, Soft Sky (ret) and Wintergreen DSP (ret)

The card is a 4 1/2" square card.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
