Winter Cardinal #2 - Rustic Christmas & Black Friday Sales

Hello, I'm not sure how many visitors I'll get here today, being that it's Black Friday and all!  For those of you that decided to avoid the crowds and long lines, I'm sharing another Christmas card that I made with the new Winter Cardinal stamp set by Altenew.  This time I have paired it with images from the WP9 Winter Woodland set and made a card with a more rustic feel.  Like my last card, I used the MISTI to do my stamping.  This allowed me to stamp each color more than once to get a darker impression.  I felt this was necessary because I was stamping over the tree images and I didn't want to be able to see them through the cardinal (makes perfect sense right?!)

Before you go, I do need to do some enabling.  Lil' Inker Designs is having a HUGE Black Friday sale that you need to check out!

Also, Ellen Hutson has a great sale going on today...

Gorgeous card Maureen!! I love the no line technique. I hit a few online sales earlier today. Lil' Inker was at the top of my list! ;)

Maureen, your cardinal cards are knock-outs! I like this one even better than the last, which tells me to look forward to your next posts. I have a friend who loves cardinals and I made sure she saw the Altenew set - but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking about getting it for myself. (You enabler, you!) If the cardinal were to jump into my Altenew shopping cart, he would probably not be alone, as I just love their stamps!

And speaking of enabling, thanks for the heads-up on Lil' Inkers' sale! I have some awesome goodies coming in the mail soon. :)
