Winter Cardinal

Today I have a card designed using Susan's Garden Notes Birds 1 Cardinal, Country Scapes Nantucket Arber & Picket Fence and Country Scapes Woods 1 die sets. Karen Burniston's Outdoor Edges was used for the snow mounds. Also used is Susan's new Snowstorm and Mounds Stencil and one of the dies from the A Way With Words - 4 Seasons die set was used for the sentiment.  This is a 6x6 inch card.

A piece of light blue card stock was embossed on the top using Susan's Snowstorm Stencil.

Two trees were die cut using the tree die from Susan's Woods 1 die set.

Two snow mounds were die cut out of white card stock using the Outdoor Edges die set.  

The picket fence was die cut 6 times. 

The two trees were attached to the embossed background.  One of the snow banks was attached on the lower portion of the card.  Next, three of the Nantucket Picket Fence die cuts were attached just above the die cut snow bank.  A second row was attached in front of that fence, slightly alternating the fence so you can see the snow in the background. The other snow bank was attached over the bottom of the fence.

Using Susan's Garden Notes Garden Birds 1 die set, the cardinal was die cut twice.  It was colored using markers.  From the second cardinal die cut, the wing was cut off and attached over the  wing of other cardinal, to make the bird more dimensional.  The Cardinal was attached to the fence with a dimensional glue dot. 

Using the A Way With Words 4-Seasons die set, the "Winter" die was used to die cut a gold sentiment.  It was die cut using gold Shimmer Sheetz.  To bring out the snowflakes, a dimensional embellishment was used over the embossed snow, on the fence, the trees and down on the bottom snow bank, then sprinkled with glitter.
