Christmas in July

Had fun stamping this cardinal from JFF stamps on these two cards.  top card is an easy peasy card ... first painted on some Ranger raspberry sparkle perfect pearls.  you know when you water down the pp to make a paint.  stamped the cardinal on a separate piece of cardstock, fussy cut him out and adhered to the center of watercolor swishes.  stamped saying on black cardstock, cut it out into a banner and mounted it on the card.  get out one of those corner punches (you know what I'm saying...admit it you have a drawer full of them) and cut out the corners.  adhere to red note card.
bottom card is my's a telescope pop out card.  did the same watercolor swishes as the top card, stamped bird over it with Staz-on black ink then added more color with my favorite color medium ... Prisma color pencils to make him pop a bit more.  to make the telescope pop up you just die cut him out with three die cuts (all at the same time)...mount each layer onto card adding an extra layer of foam mounting tape to make each layer a little higher than the next.  stamp saying on black cardstock and cut it out into a banner.  adhere to a red layer then to a white note card.
