Christmas Cardinal - Fred She Said




My card today is a Christmas Card using the pre-colored images from Fred She Said called Christmas Cardinal. I added dots of Liquid Applique when the snow dotsw are on the image and then covered with Fine Prisma Glitter for just a little added sparkle.

When I was designing this card, I was going to put the sentiment below the image, but I didn't want the pretty dry embossed Holly to be covered. So I decided to make an Easel Card instead.  

The sentiment is from an old retired stamp set from Close to my Heart and the Red Enamel Hearts and some new embellishments for CTMH also.

This card worked perfectly for using up some of my scraps of cardstock and ribbon.

Bearly Mine - Christmas
Christmas Cards All Year Round - No DP
Crafters Companion - Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut - Christmas

Beautiful elegant card. The image is beautiful. I love your embossed background. I wouldn't want to cover it up either. Lovely.

Glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our Holidays challenge.

Very pretty ... we're just now starting to see cardinals around here now that there's a bit of that white 'dust' outside. Lovely. Thanks for sharing with us at Bearly Mine Designs' November Christmas challenge
