Hello – I have a card to share using the Honey Bee Stamps cardinal die set again:
I first put together the cardinal using reds and blacks – and a little white gel pen for the eye. I then put him to one side whilst I stenciled the mistletoe arches, using the three layers for the leave and the red berries, and used the matching die to cut it out.
I white dry embossed a panel for the background, adhered the arches, and added the cardinal.
I thought I would die cut the feet again and prop him onto the sentiment strip – almost like he is perching there.
I added the red gems to each of the berries – you know when you start something and then realise just exactly how many of those berries there are? Well – it took me a little while – but I like the effect. I also added a couple of larger gems to the sentiment strip because- well – why not?
I think I’ll have a go with the other bird in the die set at some point this week – watch this space……
