Cardinal Wreath Card

Hello everyone!  Today I am changing things up a bit and sharing a Christmas card with you.  This one features the Layered Cardinal Die from Gina Marie Designs.
Honestly, this bird is stunning!  I love all the different layers that you can ink to add extra dimension.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Weathered Wood on the cardinal and Mowed Lawn on the wreath.  Speaking of the wreath, that was created by using the two larger sizes of the GMD Regal Doily Circle Die simultaneously.  I think it made a wonderful wreath, don't you?
The two base layers of the card were die cut with GMD stitched rectangle dies.  The zig zag stamp along the sides of the woodgrain panel is a BoBunny Stitches stamp.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink on it.  The sentiment is from APB Let It Snow stamp set, and that was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I used my Hampton Art Stamp perfect with all of the stamps on this card.
That bow up at the is from the GMD Ice Skate die set.  I embellished the wreath with Xmas Red Stickles.  All of the papers used on this card were from DCWV's Merry Memories stack.
The adhesives I used were Tombow Xtreme, ATG, foam tape and Zig 2 Way pen.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
