Hi friends! I hope you had a Merry Christmas if you celebrate this wonderful holiday! We had a nice time visiting family and a few friends as well!
I had to make a few last minute Christmas cards and I'm just getting around to posting them, well one actually. I made about six of these! I made this same card last February or March as a birthday card, and at that time thought it would make a great Christmas card. So I took that design and did just that!
I started with the background stamp and stamped it in gray ink. Then I went to work on the cardinal. I die cut it first, then stamped it in red and black inks. I die cut a tag, attached the gray branch (which was also die cut) and stamped the sentiment. I added the ribbon and twine and then the bird with dimensional tape. The tag was attached to the base and I added some sequins to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by!
