Cardinal on a Snowflake

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

When I saw the Jingle Belles challenge to add a sticker, I thought that
would keep me from entering.  Then I remembered these cardinal stickers that I
bought last year and never used any.

I had embossed this snowflake for another project and it had a wrinkle on the
bottom.  But it was below the snowflake so I added a frame to hide the wrinkle and
added the bird sticker perched on a die cut Merry.

Quick and simple. Just the way I like it.

I adore that cardinal sticker, and perfectly positioned perched on the 'Merry' prettily framed and love the embossed snowflake, and who would have know that the kraft card frame hides a wrinkle, and the finished card is beautiful Bonnie. x

What a clever way to save the embossed snowflake and LOVE the design! I’d never guess that cardinal was a sticker. He looks 3D! This is a fabulous CAS design!

JoAnn said...

Great way to save your embossed snowflake. Love the way you placed the pretty cardinal sticker on the Merry sentiment. TFS

Great save if the embossed snowflake background. Adding the cardinal sticker to it finished it off perfectly.

It is funny how you can find a solution to something you think was ruined if you just put it away for a while. That frame was a great solution. Love the card. You are on a roll with your Christmas cards xx

Love this card Bonnie. Love how you put the frame around it to hide the wrinkle, we would have never been any wises if you had not told us. I also love that sweet cardinal sticker! It is a really pretty one and he sits so well on the "merry" sentiment. That's a great snowflake too! Hugs, Brenda

What a sweet little sticker! That beautiful snowflake was the perfect spot for it. Wouldn't it be great if it were that easy to hide our own wrinkles!!

What a lovely CAS card! I like the red bird (I haave never seen one in real!) on the embossed motiv.

Vicky Hayes said...

The snowflake with the frame is lovely on its own Bonnie but that gorgeous cardinal really elevates it to something very special. Love this! Vicky x

Heather said...

Lovely. The pop of red with kraft and white is a winner!

Leslie Miller said...

Thankfully there's almost always a way to save something, and one would never guess your snowflake panel is a save. So beautiful! The cardinal is just about the prettiest sticker ever and looks just right on his perch by the sentiment. One more for Christmas!

nancy littrell said...

Another beautiful Christmas card, Bonnie. Love how you saved the dry EB snowflake background with a frame and found your beautiful old bird sticker. The perfect card for the challenges. TFS my friend. Love and Hugs..Nancy

Beautiful card, Bonnie! The cardinal is so pretty, perching on the sentiment. I thought you colored the bird. :-)
Love the big snowflake and the Kraft die-cut sentiment, matching the frame. Clever way to hide the wrinkle of the embossed panel. I would have never guessed!

Oh what a perfect way to use the beautiful cardinal sticker "find" and I love it even more hearing how cleverly you "rescued" the leftover embossed background. So pleased you could join our sticker-centric fun at Jingle Belles!
