Red Cardinal in the Snow…

This actually was our Christmas Card last year. Talk about a late post!  But this is the first day of the “Twelve Days of Holiday Cards & Projects” hence the first Holiday card. When ever I make Christmas/Holiday cards I try to make them into ornaments. If I’m spending this much time hand making a card I really don’t want people tossing them out after the holiday season has passed.



Season of Friendship


Versa Mark


Garden Green Card Stock

Whisper White Card Stock


White, Red  & Gold Embossing Powder

Big Shot “Top Note” Die

Dazzling Diamonds

Gold Elastic Cording

Rhinestone & Star embellishments

Here’s what I did:

Using The Big Shot and the Top Note Die I cut one die out of Whisper White  and one out of Garden Green Card Stock. I then tore the bottom of the Whisper White Top Note for the snow and adhered it to the Garden Green. I stamped the tree from the Season of Friendship Stamp Set in Versa Mark  and embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I then stamped again, in Versa Mark, the snowflake from the same stamp set  randomly on the tree branches. I embossed the snowflakes using White Embossing Powder. The bird was stamped in Real Red Ink to resemble a cardinal in the snow. With the Two-Way Glue Stick I added Dazzling Diamonds to the tree branches and Whisper White Card Stock to resemble snow. In the middle of some of the snowflakes I placed rhinestones. On top of the tree I added a red star I had and added a Gold Elastic Loop for hanging.

See you tomorrow!
