Christmas Cardinals

Does it look like I've spent hours watercolouring these little cardinals? Well, I didn't even touch an aquapainter....they are just stamped, plain and simple. The stamp is shaded, to give a watercolour effect, so all the hard work is done for you.
I can see myself using this little guy throughout the year as well, and I'll definitely be using the branch for all sorts of things...blossoms, leaves, ornaments would all look cute on a branch.
It's a bit hard to tell in the pic, but my little bird is set behind the embossed area, not on top of it, to create a 'shadow box' effect. If you're going for this look, cut your circle framelit out first, and then emboss your cardstock. Otherwise you will squash your embossing flat!
I've used gold buttons and ribbon to embellish these cards
