Creatively Artsyis my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

FSS Christmas Cardinal
Oh My, the Holidays are coming around so quickly. So many fabulous images to use and so little time. The Hand Stitching prevents me from making as many cards as I'd like, however, the stitiching is my signature look and I LOVE doing it.
My card today is 6" x 6" and was made using the fabulous image from Fred She Said called Christmas Cardinaland comes as a Digi and pre-colored, all in the same purchase. This is one of three in the series calledChristmas Bird Series. You'll be seeing the other two very shortly. AND all three come in the purchase also. What a deal!!!
This week Fred She Said is a Sponsor over at Top Tip Tuesday. Play along with the Challenge, which is "Christmas Inspired", and you could win a $20 Voucher for any Fred She said image.
I printed my image twice and cut one set out to layer from dimension. I then cropped down the digi so I printed only the Holly LKeaves and printed that out twice and cute them out for the holly corners. I added red stickles to the berries and liquid Applique and heated it for snow. Then added fine prisma glitter to the snow. I used a great MS Punch to frame the cardinal and then wove white with a gold edge ribbon through it.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Red Embroidery Floss.
I always finish the inside of my cards but never post it on my blog, only in My Etsy Stop. But, I thought the inside was too pretty not to post.
