Day 4!

Hi there

I hope you are all well and are liking the start of the MFT September Release Countdown..

Don’t forget to head to the blog to see even more amazing product and inspiration for you today..

I worked with a beautiful set called, Christmas Cardinal..I just adore those sweet little cardinals so I knew I definitely wanted to create with this set..

So I took a panel of Cement Gray card stock and trimmed a panel down, then taking the branch, I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder all over the panel, to create my own background..

I then moved onto colouring the cardinal and holly branch with my Copics, die cutting these out and adding the the Cement Gray panel..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto white card stock and embossing with gold embossing powder..

I think this card has a air of elegance and you really have so many options with this wonderful set..

I will be back again tomorrow for more inspiration for you..

Enjoy the rest of your day!
