For today's samples, I used the new Winter Cardinal set. I made a more clean and simple one, and one more stepped up. I'd love to hear which style you like better! Above, I embossed the image in gold and below, I stamped it in brown ink and colored the bird and berries and some leaves with Copics. For the card above, I created a window with the ODBD Ovals dies so my image sits beneath the frame, and layered brushed gold and red paper from the Christmas Collection 2017 Paper Pack. I cut the gold and red layers with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles an Double Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered to my white card base. For the card below again I cut my layers of red and craft with the Pierced Rectangles and the Double Stitched Rectangles dies. However instead of the window cut out, I just cut my image with an Ovals die and positioned it on my card. For both cards, I used the Merry Christmas Border Die for my sentiment. For the more stepped up card above, I also used dies from Lovely Leaves, Pine Branches, Pine Cones, Circle Ornaments and Christmas Candle. I also added pearls for the berries and the cardinal's eye above. So... which do you prefer?
Here is the NEW release set I used today:
