Happy Thursday everyone!
Today I have a Christmas card using a new CottageCutz die called "Jolly Cardinal". Is he cute or what?
I just LOVE birds, and cardinals are definitely one of my favorites! As soon as I saw this little guy, I know I HAD to have it! I love the scarf and little ear muffs, too cute!
Using the Jolly Cardinal Die, I die cut red for the body and green and white for the branch. The remaining pieces were cut with white cardstock and colored with chalk inks.
I used aqua for the card base and red and white for the mats. The white mat was embossed on the upper portion only, stamped with a sentiment, distressed a little and glued to the red mat. Then I added ribbon and popped the mat on the card base. To finish the card I added a snowflake button and a bakers twine bow!
Here's a little close up of the Jolly Cardinal! So cute!
