Merry Christmas (2nd post today)

I actually got two Christmas cards done today. This is the second one using the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge #19, I didn't use any pink, I just went with the sketch.  It also meets the Merry Monday #78 challenge since it has a bird on it.
 
I used SU Whisper White, Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler CS.  The striped and green DSP is from an older Me And My Big Ideas Christmas stack.  I used Spellbinders Lacey Squares to cut the green and red squares and adhered them both with foam tape between the layers.  I hand-cut the banners from white and red CS.  The vertical Cherry Cobbler strip is embossed with the SU Petals A Plenty EF.  The image is from an old SU set Holiday Best.  I stamped it once in Cherry Cobbler ink and again in Always Artichoke ink.  I then cut that tiny cardinal and the Merry Christmas out of the red one and glued it onto the green image.  This was punched with SU Extra Large Oval punch and glued to the Cherry Cobbler Lacey Square.  That's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate it when you leave me a comment.
 
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
