A Cardinal Christmas Card Class

These cards are copied directly from page 19 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue using the "A Cardinal Christmas" stamp set. I love Cardinals so this set was immediately on my list of 'must haves'. You can colour the image with markers (that what I used on this card), or watercolour it with the Wonder Crayons. If you do watercolour I suggest you use watercolour paper as it makes your job easier and looks much better in the end.

The Holly card is 3x3 and I 'stamped off' (stamp first on scrap paper and then on your card) the holly directly on the Very Vanilla cardstock and then I stamped it on cardstock and cut it out and attached it with dimensionals over the original.

Now I'm back to my stamp room to create more Christmas cards, so be prepared to see a variety because I love Christmas (have I mentioned that already?).

  1. Great job ... I loved these samples the moment I saw them in the Mini.

  2. People who love this stamp set, REALLY love this stamps set. I have one of my customers that may have physically harmed me if I told her she couldn't order it! Beautiful samples, Carol. That's the beauty of SU! catties. Pressed for time? In need of some inspiration? Look through a catty and BANG! Beautiful card!

  3. I love this set and am kicking myself for not getting it! I fall in love with samples from the catties and find that I love them even more in real life once I sit down and make my own! Gotta love the catty!

  4. Your cardinal card is beautiful!!! Love it.

  5. These are gorgeous samples. I love CASING the catalog. I love this set, but still haven't gotten it. I have the old retired though, so I keep debating if I need 2 cardinals.
