This is a card we did at last year's December Stamp-a-Stack. This cardinal gives me such a warm feeling, he makes me remember my grandmother's kitchen. She had a bird feeder right outside the window by the kitchen table. It was in her kitchen that I learned how to identify birds. I am an empty nester now but no grand kids yet. I hope when they do arrive that they'll have the same opportunity with me to learn and appreciate the beauty of birds.
This is a beautiful card if you are making a few for some special people. It you are mass producing a lot of cards and want to make this one be sure to leave enough time for all the coloring. He's so pretty, I can hear him singing while I type.
The Stamp Set is called: A Cardinal Christmas and is found on page 39 of the catalog. This is last year's card so this ribbon has retired. This year I'd make it with the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. Isn't that sentiment beautiful? Its from Many Merry Messages, which is a great all-purpose Christmas sentiment set.
Let me know if there is any way
