The card I'm posting today is one I made for a card swap that I signed up for. In this card swap we were to create cards using scraps of paper, so don't throw away those scraps, you'd be surprised at how many lovely cards you can create using them.
The bottom half of my card is embossed using my big shot and my petals a plenty embossing folder. I used my SU marker to color the centers of the flowers. I used my scallop trim border punch to punch my real red card stock along the top of my card.
My image was punched out using my large oval punch, but stamping my image was a bit tricky. I first stamped my image using my wild wasabi ink and then I stamped it again onto a scrap piece of card stock using rose red ink. The technique I used is called paper piecing and I cut out the parts of the image I wanted red - (the bird and the merry Christmas sentiment) and then I placed them over top of my stamped wild wasabi image. I used my black marker to put a dot on the cardinal for the eye. My image is placed on my card using dimensionals.
One more note about my card...I did use real red card stock, but I used rose red ink. The rose red ink just seemed to work better with this image.

Before I sign off for the day I wanted to share with you a picture of our puppy, Bella. Last week she was diagnosed with meningitis and thank goodness she's doing so much better now. She is a 9 month old Beabull puppy. She is 1/2 English bulldog and 1/2 beagle, isn't she cute? Of course, you know she's standing so nice for her picture because I'm was holding a treat in my hand for her.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the day!
