Tuesday with Tara {take 25}

Merry Christmas!  The countdown is on and the big day is coming very soon… I hope it is a wonderful celebration for you and your family, whether you celebrate big or small 🙂

Today I have a card for you that is inspired by the cardinals I often see in our yard.  Both the embossing folder and dies are by Tim Holtz, I kept the card simple by embossing on green cardstock (next time I’ll try grey, but green seemed more festive this time around!) and painting some brown Distress Paint into the background to add some depth.  The entire background was also spritzed with Picket Fence Distress Spray to resemble falling snow.  As you can see from the green grass in the background of the photo, we haven’t gotten any snow here yet, so I suppose I’ll just be dreaming about it this year!

Touches of red, like my ribbon and the die cut word give a pop of color that hopefully helps to draw your eye to the cardinal 😉  Merry Christmas, creative friends!  Be blessed as you celebrate the season!

Inky hugs,
