The very talented Mary (MaryR917) is the host today for the SCS Color Challenge, CC600. She asked the design team to pick a favorite challenge that they hosted between #501 and #599, and we can select their colors for this challenge. I selected the colors of Karen Barber's Color Challenge, CC509. For that challenge, she selected SU Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky, and Old Olive.
These are the steps I followed to made my card:
~Cut a circle from my card base and stamped on it multiple times using three-step stamps of a cardinal. ~Used one application of Cherry Cobbler for the first stamp, two for the second stamp, and multiple times for the third.
~Stamped the branch with Old Olive multiple times to make the branch darker.
~Stamped the pine needles with one application of Old Olive.
~Masked the cardinal and branch and sponged Soft Sky around them.
~Ran the front of the card base through my Big Shot using the SU Holly EF.
~Attached a piece of white card stock behind the card base front and adhered the cardinal piece back into the circle that I previously cut out.
~Cut poinsettias from Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stock using the Cottage Cutz Poinsettia & Holly Die.
~Assembled and adhered the flowers together and added flower soft in the centers.
~Attached the flowers to the card base.
~Cut a ribbon banner and stamped on it Merry Christmas, added foam tape, and attached to the card base.
~Added three light green sequins to the card.
