A cardinal Christams CARD

A Cardinal Christams CARD:

I made duplicates of this card to go with the coordinating gifts below
for Christmas
I got the layout from the Idea Book and Catalog.

I just had to whip out this set
One of the reasons is in the story below this post
and the main reason is because I was making this card FOR my
Grandparents in CA, and parents here.
(You know it's funny when
someone you love, loves something so much, it tends to be special to you?)

I have such fond memories of my Grandpa teaching us the names of birds and taking
us bird watching.
Well that passed on to my Dad... and all my brothers
and so I think this set is so beautiful and
has a lot of sentimental meaning with the Cardinal.
Because birds are a love of my fam :)


Stamp Set: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Naturals Ivory.
Ribbon/Embellishments: Victoria 5/8" ribbon , Build a Brad
Ink: I stamped the image as well as sentiment in Early Espresso.
and filled in the image in coordinating colors.

  1. I definitely get what you mean. My grandmother was the same way about barns. She was a tole painter when that was popular in the 70's and early 80's. I love that set in the IBC with the beautiful scene of a farm and barn. I haven't gotten it yet but know I will because it so reminds me of her.
