It's that Cardinal on a Pine Branch!

Remember this wonderful Stampavie Cardinal on a Pine Branch?  I colored several when I created this card HERE.  I wanted to achieve different look, and decided to incorporate Kaisercraft Holly Bright Designer Paper for this card.  I'm posting information regarding Kaisercraft Designer Paper Pads below!  Until I started using Kaisercraft paper pads, I did not realize specialty papers and die cut pages were included. A great value, check out more HERE.

  • Holy Bright Kaisercraft paper pad contains twenty-four single-sided 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch designer papers (two each of twelve designs)
  • Eight 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch spot varnish papers (two each of four designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch foil papers (two each of two designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch die-cut pages

That darling cardinal tag is one of the die cuts included with this paper pad.  I used a simple silk ribbon gathering for the ribbon embellishment and tied the ribbon wrap with mini cording.  I like to knot the ends of the mini cording to prevent fraying.  The card base is cut using a Spellbinders Labels Eight die to allow the Holly Bright paper to show. I raised the Spellbinders Circle die cut Stampavie Cardinal on a Pine Branch Copic colored image using Therm-O-Web foam dimensionals. Burlap String and a few Kaisercraft adhesive rhinestones finishes the card design!  The list of Copic marker colors are HERE.  Also, I added a white dot for the cardinal's eye with the ZIG White Paint Marker.  Have a wonderful Wednesday! 

***Thank you for all the questions & comments regarding this type of ribbon treatment!   
I used it on a card last week HERE.  I will be writing a tutorial with pictures to share next week!  
Hopefully that will help answer any questions!  
It's so very easy and works best with silk ribbon.  
Not only does The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store 
have great silk colors and sizes, 
Sharon also has put together silk ribbon samplers
And that is a great way to go to build your silk ribbon supply!

SOOOO CUTE! In fact I was so inspired I immediately ordered the stamp and the paper. But how did you get the pine branch to hang outside the circle die cut? Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
