A Simple Cardinal Christmas

I made this card at a recent workshop I attended by Adriana at Escape to Stamp. This is a great card to demonstrate. It uses all the images from A Cardinal Christmas stamp set; the branches are inked with VersaMark on the Real Red card stock; the cardinal is spotlighted in Real Red ink; Merry Christmas in Old Olive ink; and the main sentiment inside the card.


Along the edge of the Jolly Holiday Designer Series paper is a strip of Sticky Strip with that beautiful Champagne Glass Glitter! Love the glitter! This is my idea of a great Christmas card, great colors, simple layout, easy to reproduce, & its got "glitz"!

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Contact me if you have any questions.

The Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration catalogs will be mailed out mid December. If you would like a copy and aren't already on my mailing list contact me and I'll be happy to put you on my list.


God Bless,

How creative, Martha! I never once thought about just featuring the head of the cardinal!

Is that really the glass stuff? Yipes, mine is still unopened. You really rocked this card. Hugs, M

I think I need some of that 'glass stuff'!!! What a pretty card, Martha! And being a Missouri gal, I am a bit partial to cardinals! Great card for a workshop, too!
