Christmas All Year - Ink blended Joy

I heat embossed this extra Flourish Pine background panel after our Zoom meeting. Bonus!
I watched a Justine Hovey class on ink blending and this is one of the Distress Oxide color combos she shared.

Stamp : Hero Arts Flourish Pine background, Martha Stewart Joy sentiment
Die : Memory Box cardinals, Art Impressions double stitched rectangles

I found an old, red pigment ink and clear embossed the sentiment. The white paper is Neenah Solar White 80lb. The red paper is glossy and has faint stripes in it. It was a sample from when I used to work at the art and party supply store. I wish I had more! This is a very flat card, but I wanted to be able to perch the birds on the sentiment panel. I was afraid if I mounted them with foam tape their thin tails would get smooshed in the mail.

This is so serene and lovely. Beautiful card. Flat is good when it comes to Christmas cards that need to be mailed. Thanks for playing. Daria

such a pretty background with all the swirls, I love how the detail in the sentiment goes with it so well and love the birds perched on top!
