Is Christmas for the birds.........?

Once you get started on Christmas cards, it is really hard to stop....especially with beautiful Pear & Partridge patterned paper and a Cardinal!

I love Cardinals......I've never seen one, but hope to some day. For now, I'll have to admire them in other forms. Lucky for me, CTMH put one in a new stamp set for Fall/Winter, called To You and Yours.

I stamped the image with Memento Black ink, then coloured in the Cardinal with our Ruby and Topiary Alcohol markers. I added some detail to his eye with a white gel pen and red Sparkles to the berries.

I stamped the Cashmere cardstock with an image from the Scroll Album WOTG kit and everything was edged with Desert Sand ink. I tied up some Cranberry grosgrain ribbon and another Christmas card done!

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
