A Beautiful Season from Stampin’ Up!

My friend, Clare, asked me to make a Christmas card with a robin on.  So  I inked up the Beautiful Season stamp set from Stampin’ Up, and then used my stampin’ write marker pens to colour the image, in 3 different shades of green for the holly leaves – certainly celery, old olive and garden green – and 2 shades of brown for the robin – chocolate chip and crumb cake, with a splash of real red for that Christmassy look! 

Once I was happy with the coloured image, I cut out it out in an oval shape, and sponged with crumb cake ink for added interest.  I mounted it onto a piece of A4 confetti white cardstock from Stampin Up, folded in half to make an A5 card, and added a strip of real red cardstock and a length of ribbon (sadly retired) tied in a knot.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set. 

I love the way the confetti white cardstock has different coloured flecks of colour randomly through the cardstock – even flecks of red – and it was just perfect for this card. 

All supplies from Stampin’ Up!
