For the cardinal, I used an old stamp that I had picked up a few years ago from a clearance sale. I'm not sure who made it, but I knew it would come in handy someday! I colored it in with Zig markers, after stamping on a Stampin' Up Labels Collection Framelit.
I used a Tim Holtz 'bubble wrap' embossing folder and tore around the sides for a more distressed look, then wrapped with twine. I mounted it all on SU Cherry Cobbler (some on Read Red) cardstock for the base of the card. I also used Glossy Accents/Crystal Effects on the bird eye to make it really shine. ~Hoppy Crafting!
