Christmas Robin

Hello my friends! Christmas are almost here. Last year I shared a card with same image but this time I used rubber stamp instead of digi image.
All the stamps used on this card are from SNS Christmas Holly stamp set designed by Beccy Muir. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping and Promarkers to color the images.

I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping and Promarkers to color the images. This card is very simple and fun to make. The card base is cut with largest die from SB Classic Scalloped Circles set. Card base is covered with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. Pattern papers are cut with largest die from SB Standard Circles set. I added some sparkle to the pattern paper with Sakura Glue Pen and Crystal Ice Glitter.

Yarn is tied around the card front and attached to the place with Mega Tack Glue. I added dimensional glue to the branches and to the yarn and sprinkled Diamond Dust on top of them.

I used Versamarker pen to cover the inner rim of scalloped frame with ink and heat emboss with Dark Night EP. After that I covered all frame with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Sparkle EP.

All the images was cut out with scissors leaving the small white border around it. It makes cutting much easier. Because coloring shows through the cardstock and back of the Robin can be seen from the inside of the card, I glued thin copy paper to the back side of the image before cutting it out. Now it looks clean and pretty from the inside as well.

Sentiment in the inside of the card is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Dark Night EP. This is my favorite EP. I love the color and it has lovely shimmer.

Here's another view from the inside of the card. I love all the sparkle :)
