Since I don't really own to many silhouette stamps, I whipped out my Always stamp set from Stampin' Up! and used the bird. I got my card idea and technique from a card the Michelle Zindorf designed called "Cardinals Home". I have never cased any of her work before but after seeing this wonderful tutorial on her design, I felt a little more comfortable and gave it a go!!
The bird was stamped with Riding Hood Red on whisper white cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. The heart was stamped in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then took my Weathered block stamp and stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink over both the bird and heart. For a little extra detail, I added a fun ledge for the bird along with a hole.
To really give it a Zindorf touch, I sponged on Close to Cocoa around the whole card, then added the berries/twigs image. I then took Chocolate Chip ink and went around the card again but just not as deep & more so on the corners of the card. To finish the card, I added some fun ribbon along with the sentiment & tag.
If you get a chance to stop by Michelle's Blog "Freedom in Creating" she has wonderful tutorials on this technique PLUS many more!! Please tell her that Jennifer from Jennifer's Sweet Designs sent you. :)
Tomorrow I will announce the winner on my Card Giveaway PLUS I have another fun sample to show you using another technique from Michelle Zindorf. Have a wonderful weekend!!
