Christmas Cardinals

Sunday, December 27, 2015



The cardinal is our state bird and you'd think I'd get used to seeing them now and again.  Yet every time I do, I marvel at the vibrate red color of the male birds.  Although we haven't had any snow yet this season, but I'm looking forward to seeing that striking red against a wintery background...it's truly a beauty of nature!

For my card, I used two dies from Memory Box.  Merry Christmas die was cut from shiny silver cardstock and Twiggy Tree was cut from sparkly white cardstock as were the snowflakes.  The cardinals are from a Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
