Simples Sunday

The LIM challenge this week is to make a Christmas card incorporating a bird so what could be more simple than to use this image from the Warmth & Wonder Hostess set? I coloured the stamp with Basic Black, Real Red and Old Olive markers, stamped onto Whisper White and cut out with the Large Oval Punch. This was then matted onto a larger Real Red Oval, cut with one of the Ovals Collection Framelits. A piece of Real Red Taffeta ribbon was fixed across a piece of white cardstock, a bow added to the oval and then this was matted onto a white card blank.
I appreciate that you may not have this particular stamp set but the real purpose of this card is to show that using a single stamp with a couple of dies or punches can make something very simple but effective.
(Edited to add - my bird, being a Cardinal, should have been red! Whoops, shows how much I know about birds!!! Thanks Chrissie)
Enjoy your Sunday and do pop back tomorrow to see a Christmas Owl!
