Red Robin in Winter

8aug18 Julie 01 First of all I stamped my robin following the order shown on the stamp set starting with a light brown ink for the base, an orange/red ink pad for his redbreast and then a medium brown for the next two layers and a dark brown ink for the outline of the bird.  I love this stamp as the layers come together so beautifully to produce the gorgeous image!

I used a 6 x6 card blank and cut a piece of paper from the Forest Dreams set to fit, matted first with a layer of red card.  I then cut the red base for the frame in the same red card and cut the ornate lacy die in white.  I layered the frame over the bird image and stuck this to the red mat.

The flowers  are cactus flowers from the summer release but I think they look like poinsettias too so have used them here cutting the layers in white card and inking the edges in red ink before sticking the layers together.

 I cut the holly leaves in green card and the pine cone branches in brown and then assembled my card as shown, sticking the various elements down once I was happy with my layout.  Finally, I cut out the star tag and stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holidays stamp set.  A few red pearls completed my card.
