Firstly I must apologise for the awful quality of the photos but this was a card I made tonight, which I have to take to work tomorrow, so I had to take the photo under artificial light. I was asked by a friend to make a Christmas card which is going to be taken abroad and given to a German lady. She wanted a traditional 'British' style card and what can be more British than a robin?
I coloured the stamp from Beautiful Season with Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Chip markers and stamped onto Whisper White and then used a blender pen to colour in the image. The berries were highlighted with a white marker and some Dazzling Diamonds was added to the leaves. This was matted onto a piece of Old Olive and then onto Cherry Cobbler which had been stamped with the small holly stamp, from Pines & Poinsettias, in Cherry Cobbler ink. Some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding was tied around before layering onto a white card blank. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Modern Label punch and another label, in Old Olive, was placed behind. I added two Basic Rhinestones for an added bit of sparkle.


  1. This is beautifully coloured Margaret and I love the rich Cherry Cobbler mount. You're an excellent ambassador! Vx
