The Spirit of Christmas


It's Saturday and time for another Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.  When I saw the cake from Charm City Cakes below, I was off to make a card.  
The trees are from a large bkg. stamp that I stamped, embossed with clear then cut down to make room for the sentiment from Penny Black.  The little bird was stamped, coloured with Copics then cut out to be pop dot mounted.  I think he looks striking against the black bkg.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a peek and I hope you have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps; Impression Obsession, Penny Black/ eb powder/ Copic markers/ Memento ink

Gorgeous, Karen! I'm loving the birch trees I'm seeing popping up lately - think this stamp must come home with me.....

Such a great tip - I always see those big stamps as, well, big stamps, and I don't think to cut them down, but you've made a very effective CAS card with this one! Love the pops of red! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!
