MIX IT UP MONDAY ~ A Cardinal Christmas

I would like to introduce you to another UDI Sister, Carol Marbach.  Carol is sharing a gift that she made for her mom, (but shhhhhh, don't tell her mom about it).  Carol's mom loves cardinals…all I can say is WOW!  I hope you enjoy this.  Thank for Carol for sharing.  What a nice job.

Carol got this idea after seeing a tutorial by Amy Celona and had to do one for her mother.

Carol 1

Carol says…"you stamp the cardinal on (riding hood red) card stock and then modge podge it to two other layers.  If the image needs "bending" you do it while still soft then cut it out.  I had difficulty with the cutting because of the "wet" cs, it kind chewed up my cs.  Some of my branches were weak, so I had to tweak it a bit and add more layers to the back.  I also added the snowflakes for fun and decided on a magnet instead of a pin.

You cut an extra layer of the head and wing as well.  The head was stamped on white cs and colored with markers in more mustard and ruby red.  You use dimensionals to build the layers.  If you pop overto Amy's post you will see how incredibly beautiful her cardinal is and how each person's individual interpretation can make it their own.  Please reference Amy's tutorial if you decide to make one."

This is the inside of the cd case.Carol 2 

"I had a metal cd case and decorated it for the gift box using bella rose dsp and textured pirouette pink card stock."

Here are a couple of close up pictures of the cardinal in the case and out of the case.

"I also made two quick cards with the big shot scallop circle so thetin wouldn't be empty when she put her magnet on the refrig.  I love these scallop cards."
