Send joyful winter wishes with a bright red felt Layered Cardinal and a frost-topped Woodgrain Bird House.  Shades of red, green and glittery white create a classic scene here.  Hi, Jean here with winter wishes from our Christmas 2023 Collection.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to bright red wool-blend felt and cut the main portion of Layered Cardinal.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the wings from the red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.

Cut both head pieces from yellow/orange cardstock.  Color the top layer with a black marker.  Attach a scrap of yellow-orange cardstock behind the eye.  Assemble the cardinal - use foam dots for the outer tip of the small wing.

Cut Woodgrain Bird House from two shades of green cardstock.  Cut the snowy roof from the white  Festive Glitter Pad 6x6.  Attach a scrap of light yellow/green cardstock behind the entrance.

Cut Classic Pine Needle Sprigs from chartreuse cardstock.

Cut natural cardstock with the 2.25" and 2.75" wide A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Stamp the greeting - from the new Shining Star Clear Stamp Set - on natural cardstock with Glamorous VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it with the 1.75" wide A2 Rectangle Frames die.

Attach the diecuts to a natural A6 card (4.5" x 6.25").  Attach red Bright Jewels.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The Christmas release includes several birds, the Woodgrain Bird House and a delicate layered Bird's Nest for your holiday cards.  Combine different textures, glitter, matte and metallic papers to create an assortment of colorful birds for cards, tags and tree ornaments.
