Always Christmas

always, best yet, stampin up, stamping, cardsHi everyone! Happy Friday!

Here is my card for today's limited supplies challenge on Splitcoast Stampers!

We were to make a Christmas card using an animal stamp. At first I thought I would use Crab & Co, but then I saw the bird from Always and decided that it would make a really pretty Christmas card.

I pulled out my Basic Grey Figgy Pudding designer paper and incorporated the color challenge from a week or so ago and this is what came out! I love how it turned out!

The bird is stamped twice and cut out and mounted on dimensionals. The red panel is dry embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder which is a little hard to see in the picture.

Card Details:
Paper: Basic Grey, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla (SU!), Figgy Pudding dp (Basic Grey)
Stamps: Always & Best Yet (SU!)
Ink: Riding Hood Red (SU!)
Accessories: Small & Large Tag Punches (SU!), Ribbon (Sweet Petites), Oval Cutting System (Creative Memories), Always Artichoke Brad (SU!), Cuttlebug (ProvoCraft), Swiss Dots Folder (ProvoCraft), dimensionals (unknown vendor)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! It's supposed to be cloudy and rainy here most of the weekend, but hopefully I will get to stamp! I just got the in color ink pads, so I'm ready to go!

Have a great one!
