Winter Foliage


I just had to give the Cardinal stamp set (HCPC3353) that I bought at the York show some inky love! Heartfelt Creations has so many gorgeous goodies, it was difficult to choose. I thought this set was a good choice since it can be used year round. I also used a Gina K. Designs set called Winter Foliage, that I recently bought. It is one of GKD's older sets but so useful. Loved being able to combine these 2 sets for a special look.

The card base is Soft Suede from SU!, with a layer of All Spruced Up, Pure Luxury card stock. My white, is also PL. Coloring is done with Copic Markers. I used the embroidered floral corner punch from MS. I used Diamond Stickles and MS Mica Flake Glitter for an icy look. I used a scalloped oval Nestabilities Die for my popped up sentiment. I added paper glaze to the bird eye, beak and feet.

Thanks so very much for the apple stamp/image suggestions. I knew I could count on you to jar my brain!
