A Cardinal Christmas

By | December 23, 2012

Hi Stampin' Friends

I thought I was finished making Christmas cards but when I bought a gift for my BFF Jane, I wanted to make a card that matched the gift bag.


And I thought the Cardinal Christmas Stamp Brush Set was the perfect match.  I have the digital download so it's not considered retired – I am so glad because the cardinal is one of my favorite birds and we have a lot of them in this area.


I was able to color in the image with Cherry Cobbler for the cardinal and berries and Old Olive for the leaves. The image was then printed on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  One of the updates to the My Digital Studio is the coloring tool and it's awesome!  Did you know that you can still get the My Digital Studio on a 30 day trial basis?  Check it out!

I reduced the image and printed it out for the inside of the card.

 I used the new Needlepoint Embossing Folder for both the panel on the front and the layer on the inside of the card.
