Cardinal Ice Skating Card

The third card from the Merry and Bright Collection from is the Cardinal Ice Skating Card...............a shaped card cut using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) that is so quick and simple to assemble. The cardinal is popped with dimensionals. After the wing is embossed, it is popped with dimensionals , too. The eye is not included in the cut file - just use either a pen or a 1/8" handheld punch, then adhere using 2 way glue pen. So easy and effortless!!!! Finished card size 5" x 6". Does anyone recognize that retired SU DSP paper (yup, the one where there was that fabulous red and white flocked paper!!!!)?

The boots of the skates are partially embossed with SU Square Lattice embossing folder, the skate was left blank to add Stardust Stickles.

Add Stardust Stickles around the inside card edge and also the outside card edge.....some subtle bling!!!

The snowflake background is sponged with Close to Cocoa ink, then Stardust Stickles is added along the edges. Adhere to the card with a 2 way Glue Pen.

Card inside: Decorative label (also included in the cut file collection) is sponged with Close to Cocoa ink. Write or stamp your message here.
