Step 1: I took red cardstock and measured 9” x 6” and cut. I folded the card in half so it measures 4 ½” x 6”. I took some gray cardstock and wooden image cardstock. I cut the gray cardstock to 4 ¼” x 3 ½”. I cut the wooden image cardstock to 4 ¼” x 3 ½”. I adhered using tacky glue.
Step 2: I took a leaf branch stencil I have and stenciled the image onto the gray cardstock using forest moss Distress ink pad.
Step 3: I created the cardinal using the winter wonderland Cricut cartridge. I distressed the edges of the cardinal using fired brick Distress ink pad.
Step 4: I cut out the label for the Merry Christmas saying using the Sweetheart/Amoureaux Cricut Cartridge. The saying is from Hampton Art/Janet Dunn 2010 Merry Christmas stamp set and was stamped using Staz-on jet black ink.
Step 5: the snow on the card was created using my homemade modeling paste.
