Warm Winter Wishes Cardinal

Hello, everyone!  One of the events I look forward to each year has begun!  It's Beccy's Place - A Month of Holiday Cards!  This is Beccy's 8th year for the festivities, and it's always a lot of fun!  I'm not sure how many cards I will be able to make this year, but I am aiming for a couple a week.  If you would like some inspiration to make your holiday cards, then you will want to check out Beccy's daily posts.  

This is an alphabet challenge but I'll be skipping around.  Beccy's already on the letter "C" so I went with Cardinal.

I started with the background and applied sparkly embossing paste through a snowflake stencil (Hot off the Press Snowfall).  I mounted this panel on red cardstock.  I fussy-cut the cute cardinal (Beccy's Place Christmas Cardinals) and popped it up on foam tape.  I die-cut the sentiment (STAMPlorations Warm Winter Wishes Phrase Die) in black and adhered.  

I would also like to support the following challenges:

2 Crafty Critter Crazies AG w Critter 1/5

Crafts Galore Encore November AG 1/3

Crafter's Castle November AG 1/3

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 514 AG Optional Beginning with H

I look forward to November and Beccy's challenge too. I am going to try and check out as many of the other entries as I can to get some inspiration. I really like your sparkly background and that you used an uncoloured paste. Lovely card Kitty and I look forward to seeing your other cards this month.

I'm so glad to see your entry. I love that sparkly embossing paste. It makes a great background for your cardinal. Take care!

Beccy said...

Wow! I love this card Kitty, what a wonderful design. The glittery snowflakes in the background are gorgeous! Great idea to create them with glitter paste and a stencil, the texture is fantastic. You did a wonderful job fussy cutting around the little bird and branch, they look great layered over the snow. The big sentiment is awesome too!
