For my first go with Winter Cardinal, I kept with a classic Christmas feel. It took a few tries to get this one just right. Initially I stamped the cardinal on the branch and then sponged but I was getting some ink smearing. So I started over and sponged the edges first and then did my stamping, worked like a charm. I used my MISTI to do the stamp layering, but it would have been easy to do without it! When the card was finished I added some Glossy Accents to the berries for just a little extra interest for this CAS design.
I'll be back on Friday with another card featuring my new favorite stamp set!
