Cheery Lynn Christmas Cardinal

Hi, I'm back sharing a Christmas card inspired by this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.  I began by layering the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames in red on top of a 5.5 inch square card.  I took a smaller white piece of card stock and distressed the edges before layering a piece of design paper cut with the French Flair Boutique Stacker on top. 

I thought the Fancy Bird House decorated in red and green would make a cute holiday home for thie Cardinal from the Feathered Friends set.  I cut the birdhouse using kraft paper and then glued different colored papers to the back to add the detail I wanted.  I also double cut the fence and layered the white fence on top of the kraft base.  The snow is texture paste and then I also added sparkle by adding a glitter paste on top.  I used two layers of the Holly Lace Flourish for greenery and added a snowflake from the Snowflake Set #2.

Hi Jen! What a pretty card!! It reminds me of the cardinals flying around here, up to the bird houses hanging in the trees! They seem quite happy that we never did get any snow.
