It's a great sketch this week at the 52CCT blog, I can see me using this layout again. For my card I pulled out my lovely Inkadinkado English Robin stamp - love it, he's so podgy! I stamped the image on watercolour paper, coloured with inks and a wet paintbrush and added white Flower Soft to the branch as snow. Hmmm, it looks like the poor little robin has been out in a blizzard! I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used Real Red CS and glittered polka dot paper for my two strips and used a Fishtail Flag die on the dotty strip. I popped the robin panel up and added 3 gold nailheads to finish off the front.
I stamped the robin again on a Very Vanilla panel for inside the card and added a sentiment. I stamped and punched a snowflake circle element for the envelope flap. Feels good to have another Christmas card added to the box!
