Cardinal and Glittering Tree - a CASE

I just love the glittering trees from the Woodlands embossing folder, and was inspired to CASE this card from Anna Smith

  • The front portion of a Night of Navy card was embossed with the Woodlands embossing folder.Using Whisper White ink and an ink dauber, the trees were covered with White ink.
  • Then, using a Versa mark pen (use a dauber if you do not have a pen) and apply Versa Mark to the trees.
  • Add Irridescent ice embossing powder , remove areas where you don't want the embossing powder with a fine brush, and heat emboss. 
  • The cardinal and branch was stamped with Black Memento ink onto a piece of Vellum from the Winter Wonderland Vellum stack
A separate cardinal was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, coloured with markers, and cut out.
  • The berries were coloured with a Real Red marker on the right side, and a white gel pen on the wrong side.  The branch was coloured with a Soft Suede marker.
  • Before adding the vellum to the front of the card, a sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with White embossing powder.
  • The cut out cardinal was now adhered to the outlined one (this could be done with dimensionals).  I did put a bit of Dazzling details around the bird.
  • To finish the card, a Winter Wonderland embellishment was attached using a glue dot.
