Cardinal Christmas Greeting Card


Hey there peeps! Time again for me to share a project I created with the fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn!  I’ve got a pretty Winter Bird Tag image with natural fibers, poinsettias and leaves and a perfect sentiment to bring a little joy to the holiday.  This card is 5 x 6 1/2 inches so there’s lots of room to layer up the paper patterns.

I cut the poinsettias, gave them a little inking, stamped some text, shaped and added glitter and “snow” for a proper frosty look. Tucking in a little seam binding helps to fill in the arrangement and anchor the corner.

This beautiful image is 1 of 9 tags from my new Winter Birds Christmas Tag Digital Collage Sheet. Perfect to bring a bit of nature to your Christmas crafting for cards, larger tags, labels or to create a sweet banner. Adding the sentiment over one of the flowers helps add depth. More flourishes and another smaller bloom balance the card without hiding the focal image.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

  1. Beautiful card! I have to admit that holly and pine needles on a card always draw my attention! I do miss seeing red cardinals out here on the West Coast of the USA. Thanks for posting this lovely card!
