Christmas Robin layered card.

happy-holly days stamp set robin stamp christmas card

 I've been busy this past week preparing and having a stand at a Papercraft Show which was a fun day yesterday.  It means I've had little time to make cards for blog posts and not only that, I don't have any bell stamps which is our theme for Christmas Card Club today.  However we have a let out of anything goes when you don't have the stamps and therefore I'm sharing a card a made a little while ago. It was inspired by the lovely Martine Smith if you know her. She used a different Robin and scaled it all slightly differently, but I've done my take on her original.  

On a piece of white card I stamped the Robin in memento ink and then added some grey using Stampin' Blends (alcohol markers) to the bird and also Poppy Parade to the holly berries and the simple combo has worked well with the flashes of colour.  Additional colour can be added using a stamp similar to the dotty one I've used and of course a bit of silver heat embossing coordinates and adds Christmas shine.   Once coloured I used my trusty Stitched Shape dies, sadly retired from Stampin' Up! to cut two squares from the image.  Now if you have a go be sure to position the dies so that you don't cut through a vital piece of the image like the eye for example as it could distort your image too much.  

I added a black matt layer to the white card base and then positioned all the stamped pieces adding stampin' dimensional to the squares.  To create the pyramid effect I added double layered dimensional to the smaller square.  Carefully match up your image as you replace the squares.  

Robins are so popular for Christmas and I love this one.  

PS if you missed out on the Stitched Shape dies I have a brand new spare set for sale. Please contact me if you would like them.  

Happy stamping all and keep safe.
