For the back of this piece, I cut two of the Cathedral Window dies from Woodgrain Cardstock colored with various brown Distress Stains, and two from chipboard. I adhered the woodgrain to the chipboard. Then I attached one window to a large sheet of Mica. I wanted it to be kind of frosted looking, so I brushed Distress Collage Medium on it, then I attached the second window to the back so the mica was sandwiched between.
Once I had them in place, I added some Distress Collage Medium to hold the Mica Flakes and Distress Rock Candy Glitter. Tim Holtz's Holiday Demo Part 3. His demo is much better than one I could do here and well worth watching if you havent.
To make the light up drippy candles, you will need to follow a different demo than the one I posted on here. Mine don't light up. Tim Holtz took the idea to a whole new level! You can see the light up drippy candle demo here.
To make the front cardinal look like it was sitting, I cut off the legs and part of the tail. I adhered the Cathedral Window, Cardinals, and three more pinecones, all with a glue gun. A quick spray of Distress Glitter before the glue dries, helps to cover it and makes it look like snow.
Just a reminder that this cardinal die is FREE from Simon Says Stamp with the purchase of any Tim Holtz products, while supplies last. Once it is gone it is gone, so don't wait.
