A4 half fold card - 'from our family to yours'
The background was made using our Hero Arts 'Leaf Flourish' wood mounted stamp and VersaFine Onyx black ink.
The ribbon is 6mm wide red grosgrain (a favourite of ours).
Applying Glossy Accents to the eye gives the robin it's typical bright eyed look
These cards are very easy and quick to make and the ribbons give them a real touch of luxury.
The holly was simply punched from lime green light weight card, using our large holly punch, and edge-tinted with VersaColor 'Tea Green' Add berries using a red marker and finished off with Glossy Accents. Alternatively you could use small red gemstones.
This card uses our 16mm red grosgrain ribbon, bows are not always necessary, with some of the wider ribbons a knot can be just as effective and much easier!
Here we used our red satin 'baby ribbon', it's a small card and so the delicate baby ribbon suites it perfectly.
Or just keep the cards simple by mounting the images onto coloured card.
We've kept the outlines very simple so there's no fiddly cutting out.
