I love cardinals, I think they are gorgeous birds. I had never seen one in person until visiting Hubs in Maryland. So I became obsessed with having a cardinal on this year's holiday card. I am happy to say that 50 cardinals (made up of 7 pieces) later I still love cardinals!
I spent a lot of time with my punches in the construction of these cards. I started assembling the birds first, next the pine branches were punched out, then the sentiment panel was stamped, embossed and inked,next up the dry embossing strips, and finally the patterned papers and cardstock panels.
There were originally two versions of the card, until I put together some of them with the wrong color combinations...now there are 4 versions.
Thanks for stopping, wishing you and your families the best of the holidays with a new year filled with health and happiness.
