Visitor from Heaven

Hi! It feels like Summer outside but here I am, sharing a Winter card with you. Well, it's never too early to prepare for Christmas. Cardinal and Holly Stamp Set 895 by Sparkle N Sprinkle is a good reason to make a start with Christmas cards. 

Materials used:
StampsCardinal and Holly #895;
Embossing PowdersSilver Detail [EP257];
InksTuxedo Black Memento ink [ME-900], Versamark [VM001];
Dies: Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large), Sizzix (Holiday Greens Mini);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;
Cardstock: White, Craft Perfect Mirror Card Chrome Silver [9452E], pattern paper;
Others: Acetate;

I stamped the bird from Cardinal and Holly Stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to a white cardstock and colored it with scissors. I fussy cut the image out with scissors. To make my life easier, I left a white edge all around. Berries are covered with Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops
I used Sizzix (Holiday Greens Mini) die to cut few Holly branches out of Craft Perfect Mirror Card Chrome Silver. I made lovely 'nest' out of them for the bird to sit in.

I colored piece of white cardstock with Cornflower Blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. After it was dry, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Detail Embossing Powder.

I placed the sentiment layer inside of the shaker element. I used Spellbinders Circle dies to cut a frame out of Craft Perfect Mirror Card Chrome Silver. Shaker is filled with Elsa Blue Sequins.

I added some Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone to different places on the background. It will peek out here and there. I curled up two corners of the background and adhered piece of paper, colored with Cornflower Blue Mousse, to peek out from the corners. Some Elsa Blue Sequins has adhered to the background as well.

Instead of my regular glitter matting layer, this time I used  Craft Perfect Mirror Card Chrome Silver.
