Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images as follows. Use Cantaloupe and Lipstick Red on cardinals and lamp post. Use the Lipstick Red on the holly berries as well.

Use Dries White glue along with Crystal glitter to create snowy effect next to cardinals. Use a sponge to dab some Dries Clear glue randomly onto card as desired and sprinkle with frosting powder and heat set. This finishes it off with a sparkly snowy look.
