Vintage Christmas Post Cardinal Tag

Hello friends,

I finished a tag using some colored images from a few days ago.

I stamped a collage like tag with my Hero Arts Vintage Christmas Post set.  I colored the Cardinal with coloring pencil, and die cut using the matching frame cut.  Next I clear embossed the whole die cut to give it shine.  Also I die cut the bird two extra times and glue all three layers together to make it thicker.  I also added Sprinkle Sugar to the Pine Cones to intensify the colors.

Hi Cindy, I love this cardinal. I don't think I have ever seen him before. I also like the whole layout you created for your tag, pretty subtle background. Hope you had a great weekend.
