Christmas

Welcome and happy to see you dropping in for a little visit. Today's shaped card was made with S/binders Labels 28. When I cut the c/stock, I forgot to leave the topmost edge outside the die, so had to hinge it together with adhesive. Works pretty well to adhere together with tape. Simply scored each piece, put on some tape, Voila, a hinged card. I used the insert to hide the join. I diecut the snowflake design paper with the same size die, adhered to cardfront. This paper is by Heidi Grace Designs-Frost Blvd. Diecut a smaller size mat with red glitter paper, cutting out the interior piece. The image is KK0023, Cardinals & Birch Trees (2 of my favorite things), by Prickly Pear. Got this at the recent stamp show where I did myself in, by walking more than I should have! (oh but it was such fun). I used the Snow Writer at the bottom, with some blobs on the tree branches, then added MS coarse glitter while the snow was wet. I like this little card. It's going to visit over at the Rudolph Day on the 25th. If you have any new Christmas cards, this is a fun challenge to join...lots of creative & talented, not to mention very friendly folks - to interact with. Come join us at Sarn's. She also writes about her adventurous chicks, Margot & Harriet, every Sunday. Sure to provide a chuckle or two. See you there.

This is a very striking card! I love cardinals and this image is very nice.
I will remember about the tape to hinge the card and then hide it with the liner...Smart thinking!

Gorgeous card Mary. Love the glittery snow and, every time I see a cardinal on a card, it reminds me of the fabulous book by Fannie Flagg - "A Redbird Christmas".

Thanks for entering my challenge.

Very pretty card Mary, love the primary colours and I always like to see the cardinals against the white snow here too. The Caroling Duck stamp can be bought online at PBStamps (http://pbstamps.com/search/stampkeyword.php?keywords=caroling&Radio1=all), a very useful resourse for practically every PB stamp ever made.

Gorgeous card, Mary. I like how you colored the background a blue to complement your snowflake paper and the blue flowers. I always loved seeing the cardinals visiting our yard (alas, not here in AZ though).

This is a gorgeous card Mary! I love the snowflake background and the red glitter paper. The birch trees and the carndinals stamp is just beautiful!! I love the way you colored it and I love the snow on it. Don't know what a snow writer is, but looks like something I need! lol
