"Merry Christmas" cardinal card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer's Tip: Back the cardinal with red cardstock and gently lift the swirls and holly leaves as you cut under the Dazzles and around the bird.
- Place the card fold on the side. Cover the card with green snowflake paper. Use the Corner Chomper to round the corners of a 4"x5 1/2" rectangle of striped paper. Ink the edges red and glue to the center of the card.
- Mat the long edges of a 5"x3 1/2" piece of green berry branch paper with red cardstock, leaving a 1/16" border and glue across the card center. Place lengths of Dazzles border across the red border.
- Trace a label onto blue dot paper and mat with red cardstock, leaving a 1/16" border. Glue to overlap the top of the border. Place word Dazzles and a swirl at the center. Embellish swirl with Jewel Dazzles.
- Back the holly and cardinal Dazzles with cardstock and glue to the card as shown. Place red Jewel Dazzles for berries on holly.
