I really loved this sentiment and had to use it with my card. This stamp set has a couple sentiments, but this one was my favorite! I stamped it with my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, using a gold sparkle pigment ink from my stash. I stamped the sentiment, then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I die cut out the cardstock using my Tonic Tangerine and a Tonic Sunray Venus Layering Basics Die Set die. I also used the same die and traced around the outside edge onto black cardstock and fussy cut it out to make a mat for the die cut sentiment.

I also decorated my card panel. I started out by laying down a strip of 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape. I die cut some leaves from the Tonic Autumnal Oak Die Set from sparkly green cardstock. I pressed the leaves into the Tear-ific Tape, and then pressed the stamped and colored Cardinal die cut panel as well (more about that below!). Then, I burnished in some Aztec Gold glitter to all the rest of the exposed Tear-ific Tape. This Aztec Gold glitter is super sparkly and so beautiful. It was perfect!

And here is my Cardinal! I stamped out the Cardinal and Holly stamp with Versamark Ink, again using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped the cardinal and then sprinkled on Golden Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. I colored the bird with brush markers, then die cut the image with Tonic Tangerine and Tonic Sunray Venue Layering Basics Die Set. I also used the die to use to trace around it and fussy cut out a mat for the bird panel. I also squeezed on some Nuvo Winter Cranberry Glitter Accents to the inside of the berries. I also squeezed some Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops into the upper corner of the card base as well.
