Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas!

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing a card for my design team post.  The beautiful Christmas Cardinal is the from the Christmas Part 2 die release and is one of my favorite dies from this release.
For my card base, I went with a basic color palette and fussy cut the pieces for the fence.  I heat embossed a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry & Bright stamp set on a hand cut flag.
I layered the fence posts onto my card base building the fence along the bottom edge. Next, I splattered the background with some white paint for a snowy affect and matted it on a black card base.
I cut out the Christmas Cardinal in white card stock and used my Oxide Inks to shade all of the pieces.  I went with the traditional red theme for this sweet bird.
The cardinal was perched on the snowy fence as the focal point of my card.  I love the way he pops against the neutral background.
The embossed sentiment was added above the cardinal as the final finishing touch on my card.
Here is the die set used on my card, available in the store:
