Christmas Cardinal - Acrylic Embossing

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Today I am sharing a Christmas card that was made for a special friend! Now that she has received the card, I am able to make the post. I am showcasing features similar to a previous card that I posted last year here

The card is 5" x 6 1/2" and is inspired by the pretty sketch at Card Patterns. Designer paper is Martha Stewart Holidays that was purchased last Christmas.

Cricut Cartridges:
Winter Woodland - Page 59 Bird is cut 2 1/2". Red glitter paper is also from the Martha Stewart Holidays pack.
Joys of the Season -  Page 69 Holly and Berries
The embossed acrylic background is a piece of Cricut cartridge packaging. It is embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls folder.
Other supplies include Christmas Red Stickles on the berries and Martha Stewart punch. Inking is Dew Drop Versa Magic Gingerbread. Christmas sentiment is Holiday Time Crystal Sticker. I hand cut a piece of the red glitter paper to run through the openings.
