Grateful Heart

This is my card featured on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today
using the new.
Cardinal and Holly stamp set.

This was a fun card to make basically using the new Cardinal and Holly
and a few die cuts.

I started by using my score board and scoring random lines across.
I was trying to achieve the look of siding on a house.
Then I sponged on Embellishment Mousse Spring Green for color.

Next I die cut a few  Cherry Lynn Designs Holly Flourish
then coated with glue using Glue Pen Large then sprinkling with  Lator Gator glitter.
I set those aside to dry, then stamped my image with Versamark and
embossing with Black Fine Detail embossing paste.
I then used Copics to color in the image.
Once that was done I fussy cut it out.

I die cut a window and shutters using 
Poppystamps Small Madison Window and Small Madison Window Shutter dies.
The window and shutters were adhered to my 'house' panel
using Tear-ific Tape ½”.
Using a small heart punch, I added them to the shutters with 
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Once again using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive,
I added the holly flourishes.
Using Versamark again, I stamped the sentiment, then embossed with 
Candy Cane embossing powder.
To finish, Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss Red Berry
were added to each berry in the image

Gosh, I think I have that window die. Not sure if it's the same one. It has shutters and a window box with it. LOVE your idea for creating siding on the house! And it's yellow! A beautiful backdrop for your cardinal and holly. Another Christmas card under your belt -- way to go!

Wonderful scene, Diane. That siding looksvery real and the window in black really pops. The striped drapes on the window is a nice contrast.
