Good morning ladies....

I have used the bird/robin from the stamp set in this month's Creative Stamping Issue 60

But, before I stamped the image I stamped the inside of the card with another two 'freebie' Christmas stamps, onto white card and heat embossed it with a WOW Embossing Powder in Cardinal Red

The envelope was also stamped and heat embossed in the same manner

The bird was stamped onto white cardstock and also heat embossed.  I used a Versafine Clear Ink Pad and Hero Arts Embossing Powder in white

I used Copic markers for the grey areas and ProMarkers for the 'red breast'

The top white panel was adhered to red cardstock leaving a narrow border at the top and sides

Before adhering these two panels onto the 6" square card base I added red twine, adhering it behind the red card, die cut the bird image, added mounting foam to the back then adhered it over the red twine and onto the card

The sentiment was also stamped and heat embossed and a few red gems were added to finish the card

The same was applied to the envelope

Last week's stamp winner has kindly donated her win so these stamps are up for grabs again
