The wreath was stamped with the two largest stamps in the set and Gumball Green InColor Ink. I then added red "berries" with my trusty Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Diamonds liquid glitter (How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...!) and set aside to dry.
My red bird was punched with the Bird Builder Punch and Real Red cardstock. I added a little top peak cut from another wing tip to make it a cardinal, embossed it with the Big Shot and the new Lace Brocade Embossing Folder then added a Pearl "eye". (You can almost see the sparkle of the Dazzling Details "berries" in this picture... so pretty in person!) I punched the leaf out of Gumball Green with the same punch and tucked it under the bird.
Gumball Green cardstock (what a great Christmas green!) is the card base for the Whisper White wreath layer (on Dimensionals). I could have diecut the wreath with the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits but on this card I was going for something pretty simple and quick to replicate. However, diecutting the wreath would definitely be a stepped-up version! The bird was added with Dimensionals and a 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon bow was added at the top for the final touch.
The "Merry Christmas" greeting is from the Come to Bethlehem set, and inside is a verse from the Snow Swirled set.
I hope you enjoyed the card today. Had anyone planned to use the Daydream Medallions set for Christmas cards? Hmm, I do have another idea or two but those will have to wait! I must now prepare for my upcoming workshop!
Have a great weekend, and I hope you get to stamp!!
