Red..red..Robin

Rootling around in my Christmas stash I came across a load of Papermania papers left over from last Christmas, and the pack had even included some toppers. I also had a new set of Papermania Christmas sentiments embossing folders to play with - which was most fortuitous (sneaked a big word in today!). This is what I made:
The embossing folders are lovely, four different ones in the set. Plus, they are 6" long so just perfect for A6 sized cards or even better for 6" square ones - where you can use them either vertically or horizontally to suit.

I used:

- white 6" x 6" card stock

- embossing folder from Papermania's 'Seasonal Sentiments & Borders' set

- tartan backing paper from Papermania's Stephanie Dyment 'Classic Christmas' 8" x 8" paper pack

- robins topper also from the pack - love their foiled red breasts

- red mirri card to back the topper

Quite a lot of the paper pack and toppers have some red foiling on, which can be nicely picked up by using red mirri card where appropriate.

That's my quick card for today - the sun is shining so let's hope it's a lovely weekend weather wise - and if not, there's always crafting of course :)) Have fun!
