A Cardinal Christmas

Things are Christmas crazy around my house these days. I managed to whip out several major tasks: 60 Christmas cards made and sent, 10 dozen French cookies made and frozen, and 25 Christmas recipe scrapbook pages completed. But shopping, wrapping, and 48 scrapbook pages still await me! I need to kick things up a notch this week.

It was fun taking a break from all of those tasks to complete today's Let's Make a Scene card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. For today's design I included images from Multi Step Winter Cardinal, Multi Step Cabin by the Lake, Multi Step Christmas Lights, Multi Step Tree Friends, and Greetings from the Woods. To create the look of snow on the cabin roof, I did not ink the shingles on layer 4.

  1. Wow, you have included so many great sets from KSS on this and you always add some helpful hint to how you achieved your sensational results. That was a great tip here about how you accomplished the look of snow on the roof. I guess I have 24 of those scrapbook pages to make.
