Welcome back to my blog and Magenta Super Saturday. It’s time for me to get started on my Christmas cards so I decided on the Christmas Holly Bird for my first card of the season.You can also see my card on the Magenta blog here. I used VersaFine Vintage Sepia to stamp the image on white cardstock, then used colored pencils to color the image. I restamped the image using VersaMark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I lightly shaded the background area with Distress Tumbled Glass ink. To create the circle frame, I die cut a piece of textured white cardstock with a stitched circle die. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock then cut it out with a stitched banner die and added a bit of shading with Tumbled Glass ink. I assembled the card then added glossy accents on the berries along with a few jewels for added sparkle. On a personal note, life is taking me in different directions so I’ve decided to step down from the Magenta Design Team. It has been so much fun working with these talented ladies for the last several years. Thanks for all your lovely comments on my posts.
