SweetStamps Monthly December Challenge

Good morning sweeties!!
Today, is the 15th and that means it's time for the monthly technique challenge at SweetStamps.
This months theme is: 
Easel Card
Easel cards are so much fun to make and are really easy. It just uses a lot of cardstock, but the end results are simple spectacular!!  This design in card can make a simple card, a WOW card!!!
For my card today, I using this gorgeous from Jacqueline Hill: Cardinal Pair
This stamp is such a beautiful Christmas stamp and later on you can use it for "Wedding or Anniversary" card.   
Here is close up of the gorgeous cardinals and the puffy liquid applique!!
I love this stuff!!!  The sentiment is part of this amazing stamp set.  I adhered foam dot to the middle of the strip and tacky tape to the ends.  This was done so it would help keep the card open, since I really didn't have any other embellishments on the card.
Don't forget we also have our weekly challenge still going on.
