Christmas Cardinal

Simon Says Stamp | Peace On Earth

Hi there!

Have you ever made a card that brought back sweet and lovely memories of someone? This is one of those cards for me. The entire time I was making it, I was thinking about my mother-in-law and how much she loved Christmas and cardinals. If I could give it to her, I would – and she would keep it forever to display every Christmas. I love it when something I make brings back warm and happy memories like this card did.

Like the robin card I shared a few days ago, I made this card using the Winter Birds set from the new Simon Says Stamp Peace On Earth release. I just love all the birds in this set and how perfectly they pair with the different branches! It’s such a great set for the holidays!

I used my Copic Markers to color the cardinal and the foliage and used my Prismacolor pencils to add in a bit of detail. I love the red in the cardinal and the berries – perfect Christmas colors!

Does your art ever bring back wonderful memories or make you think of someone you love? I hope so! And I hope you find time to make something beautiful today!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Ps:  Just a reminder to check out the Simon Says Stamp blog for more holiday card inspiration using the new Peace On Earth release!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
