Ombre Cardinal Season's Greetings Card

Created this Christmas card using ombre colors (light to dark green & light to dark red). Stamped Hero Arts Traditional Messages sentiment. Punched the sentiment out with a Stampin' Up punch. Used Tim Holtz Spring Greenery which before die cutting I used TH Stencil Burlap and sanded the stencil pattern onto the green core'dinations cardstock. Sanded the red core'd cardstock before die cutting the TH Cardinal. Added red shiny circles as berries for brightness on the card.
