Christmas Cardinal

This card is based on a few similar cards that I've seen while browsing the Internet this year, particularly this one

I'm not sure whether it was the clever use of the Bird Punch, or the Hardwood background stamp as a fence that attracted me to it, but I had to recreate it! 

After stamping the pine tree/needles, I wanted to add in some snowflakes, but I knew they'd barely show up if I just inked them  so I heat embossed them in white. I also liked the idea of putting in a notch along the fence top   that was just done freehand with scissors. Of course, it then begged for some  glitter to represent a bit of icy snow. For the greeting, I used the greeting from last November's Paper Pumpkin kit.
