Christmas Cardinal

I love creating my own Christmas cards using Susan's Garden dies.  For this card I used her Garden Notes Garden Birds 1, Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone, and Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die sets.  Also used were the Els van de Burgt Studio Fitted Frames, and Holly Flourish.

This is a 6x6 inch card.  Using the largest and  third largest Fitted Frames dies, 2 white (open) frames were die cut.  Using the second largest die in this set, two vellum ovals were die cut.  One of the vellum ovals was embossed with a dotted embossing folder.

A piece of red card stock was attached to the front of a white card front.  The third largest Fitted Frame die was used to die cut an oval in the front of the card.  

One of the vellum ovals was glued to the back of each open die cut ovlas.  On the front of the oval without the embossed dots, small die cut snowflakes were glued on.  The oval frame with the embossed dots was glued over the one with the snowflakes.  The vellum oval was glued over the oval opening in the card front.  By having the snowflakes in between the vellum sheets and then attached over the opening in the card, it helped the snowflakes show up.

A lot of Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs were die cut and arranged at the bottom of the oval.  A few more pine boughs were die cut to use at the top of the card.

The Cardinal from the Garden Notes Garden Birds 1 die set was die cut using white card stock.  It was colored with markers.  Attach the bird in the center of the pine boughs.

Using the Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die set, create one small red poinsettia.  Fill the center of it with Susan's Prills,

Create two pinecones using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set.  

Die cut to Holly Flourishes.  Shape the holly leaves using Susan's Flower Tool Kit

Arrange Holly Flourish, a few pine boughs, small poinsettia, and pine cones at the top of the oval frame.  

Using Gold Christmas Peel Off Stickers for the sentiment in the center of the oval.  Use the gold Peel Off Sticker branches along the side of the frame.  Add small Gold Peel Off Sticker Corners to the top corners.

To complete the card, I used White Texture Paste for the snow and a few red glitter balls from the craft store.
