Woodland happy scene Christmas card

This card came together while I was trying out a new technique of inking and stamping images directly onto the embossing folder.  I started with a piece of card 4x5 1/4" .  I sponged marina mist and night of navy inks directly on to the embossing folder.  I then inked up my images from Happy Scenes and Lovely as a Tree in Mossy Meadow ink and stamped these images directly on the embossing folder.  This was all done on the inside top cover of the folder.  You then place your whisper white cardstock piece inside the folder and run it through the big shot to create the beautifully inked scenery.  I then stamped the both cardinals and the deer from White Christmas.  I used the Aqua painter with real red ink to color the cardinals and soft suede for the deer.  These I fussy cut and put on the card.  To finish it off I stamped and embossed in gold the Merry Christmas banner and fussy cut that.  This focal piece was put on a real red card base.
To finish off the inside of the card, I chose a sentiment from Versatile Christmas and stamped the same tree image in Mossy Meadow from Happy Scenes with another little Cardinal from White Christmas.  It's not a card to mass produce, however, it does makes very special card for a loved one.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope I've inspired you to try some new techniques and see where it takes your creativity. If you need to order any supplies, please click on my shpping cart in the upper right hand corner.
