CottageCutz Holiday Cardinal

Christmas is fast approaching.  Wasn't it just Thanksgiving....yikes.  Today I have a card made with the beautiful Holiday Cardinal from CottageCutz.  This die is gorgeous. 
 
This card used Spellbinders Floral Oval, Large Oval, and Holly Motif Corners.  Martha Stewart Holly punch around the page and branch punch.  The plain oval die cut was embossed as well as all the white background.
 The berries on the background of the CottageCutz die were cut on red metallic paper.  The flowers are recollection and were sent to me by my friend Pam.  Thank you Pam!   The leaves are the "Greenery" die from CottageCut.
 Below you will find a picture of the dies I used.  I have to make another one of these cards as I always send a Cardinal to my Brother-In-Law and his family.  Thanks for visiting today.  I really appreciate it.
