Time to get my Christmas cards posted :) I mailed them out earlier in the week and I hope that I don't spoil it for anyone...but here goes.
This is card #1...the others will be posted in coming days.
My parents always had a family of cardinals that would frequent their feeders, and now, for us, moving to VA has proved to be a high population of cardinals...it is our state bird and all, they are so vibrant and you can always tell when they are around by their quick chirp.
I found a card on SCS by MakeTime2Stamp that I just loved and I cased the idea and embellished on it. You can see her card here. The in-colors of Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red were a cool combo for this card.
I just love using the CuddleBug for the background, it really gives it some dimension! Like real snow!!! And I really love this stamp set. The cardinal is so majestic, he was fun to color! Red is my favorite color too!
I water colored a bit of blue around the bird to make him pop off the page a bit.
