Cardinal Joy

Hi there, Shona here with you today to share my last 2019 DRU card!! I just don't know where this year went! Today I am highlighting Dee's Distinctively Cardinal Frame.

Here is the cardinal frame die cut:

I started with backing a piece of white cardstock with a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet. The die was placed face down on to the adhesive side, so that when I ran it through it only cut the adhesive sheet and not completely through to the cardstock.

I then ran the die cut through with red cardstock and fussy cut the two birds.

I picked off the protective backing from the cardinals and branches and placed the red cardstock cardinals in their appropriate spots. 

I then took Glistening Emeralds flocking and burnished it in to the remaining sticky surface.

The remainder of the protective backing was then peeled off and Sparkling Snow glitter was burnished in as a sparkly background.

I found the perfectly sized frame for my piece - the Cheery Lyn Celtic Square Boutique Stacker Frame. This particular one is not in the store, but there are other stacker frames. The medium sized frame was cut out of green cardstock.

This was layered to red cardstock and then to a white card base before adding the focal piece with foam tape for dimension. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black for the eyes.

The last step was to add the sentiment. I taped a piece of adhesive tape to a scrap of red cardstock. This time I put the "joy" die on the other side so that it would be sticky on the back of the word.

I took of the sticky backing from the die and stuck it on the top of the glittered panel.

It was a bit fiddly getting the adhesive off the back of the dot of the "joy", but I really liked the result. Hope you do too?
