What could be more reminiscent of home than the brilliant red of a cardinal against the crisp white background of newly fallen snow or the sight of a Christmas lantern lighting the way as the gentle sounds of Christmas bells fill the air?
At least, that’s what I was thinking as I created this next card . . .
With papers, stamps, and dies from the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly collection, I was able to create exactly what I was envisioning in no time at all!
I took one of the sheets from the Festive Holly paper pack and cut it down to 5.75″ x 5.75″ then adhered it to a 6″ x 6″ card base. The lantern, cardinal, and holly were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers then cut out with the matching dies.
Copic Markers Used: Lampost – C3, C5, C7, C9. Flame – Y06, Y17, Y21, YR20. Candle – Y21. Leaves – YG61, YG63. Berries – R17, R39. Branch – E37. Cardinal – R35, R37, R39, Y17.
I used another piece of patterned paper inside the card as well as one of the larger tags:
