A Touch of Nature

Hi Everyone!!  Today at JustRite we are featuring the new Nature Nested Sentiments and Verse set!  I've also used it with the Back Yard Birds set that we featured yesterday!!  :)  Have you seen that JusRite are also stocking 96 Copic Colours??  All the colours I've used on today's card can all be found on the JustRite website (they are only available to the USA and Canada).

I started with a base of white and layered with Riding Hood Red (embossed with Nat EF).  The middle panel is more white punched on each side with the Martha Stewart Iron Gate Border Punch and then topped with more embossed red card.  I then stamped the Cardinal from JustRite's Back Yard Birds set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (B000, G24, G28, E21, E25, E29, C1, C3, C5, R24, R29, Y15, Y17).  It's been cut out with Spellbinders Large Circle Nestabilities - I just love the fact that the JustRite stamps are designed to co-ordinate perfectly with Spellbinders, makes it sooooooo easy!!!!  I decided to frame the circle with a piece of white cut with the Blossom 2 Nestabilities and I added a bit of sparkle to the edges with a Clear Spica and then popped it up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from the new Nature Nested Sentiments and Verse and has been cut with Label 4 Nestabilities and I've sponged a little blue around the middle and attached over the white satin ribbon.

Love the punched white border strips down the sides and the light shading on the sentiment panel. Of course your colouring is superb but that goes without mentioning. Lovely card!

Hi Kathy,
