Today is the first day of sneak peeks using images from A Muse's fantastic new holiday release (AKA A*Muse*A*Palooza). The theme for this first little amuse-bouche is "All Natural Christmas."
I chose to use the brand-new cranberry 4-bar notecard, along with vintage black and natural white cardstocks.
I loved this cardinal silhouette image and chose to stamp it with Brilliance inks -- Pearlescent Ivy and Rocket Red. I stamped the whole image in green, and then stamped it again in red (separate piece of paper) so that I could cut out just the bird portion of the image... which I then glued on top of the image stamped in green (if that makes sense). I really wanted there to be a stark contrast of colors between the bird and the branch. And then, a little ultrafine glitter made the branch's leaves glisten. A simply elegant, timeless, and relatively easy card!
