A Christmas Cardinal

I love this little guy - and he's made from punches! I wheeled the "So Swirly" jumbo wheel on the Kraft card stock, on the Mellow Moss card stock, and on the Real Red card stock! I also sponged all around the bird with Chocolate Chip ink. The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
Paper: Kraft - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Mellow Moss - 5-1/2 X 5 (and then I used the "Top Note" die from The Big Shot); Real Red; Basic Black; Summer Sun
Stamps: So Swirly Jumbo Wheel (P. 198); Many Merry Messages (P. 139)
Inks: Versamark; Mellow Moss; Real Red; Chocolate Chip
Miscellaneous: Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain Ribbon; Top Note Die; Jumbo Wheel Handle; Stampin' Sponges; Bird's Body - 1-3/4" Circle Punch; Wide Scallop Punch (once you've punched the circle for the body, you take a small bite out of it with the Wide Scallop Punch); Tail - Folk Heart Punch (this punch is retired, but you can use many different punches to resemble a tail); Wing - Folk Heart Punch (I cut the Folk Heart in half); Face - 3/4" Square Punch (glued on and then rounded with scissors); Beak - 1/4" Square Punch; Uniball Signo White Gel pen for the eye; Stampin' Dimensionals
