Every stamper needs a bird in their collection of stamps! I love our Joyful Season stamp set that is in the current Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog. Isn’t this cardinal gorgeous?
One thing I love about this stamp set is that the bird can be a cardinal, blue jay, or lots of other kinds of birds depending on the colors you use. I’m adding it to my stamping ‘to do list’ to make up some sample birds of different colors to give you ideas.
To create the tile technique on this Christmas card, I first stamped the cardinal and branch onto a 3 x 4″ piece of whisper white cardstock. After it was stamped, I cut it into 1″ squares and mounted them to basic black cardstock. It took a little patience, but was very easy!
Here is a close up of the embossed greeting and that adorable snowflake element embellishment.
That’s today’s cardinal Christmas card! Use the links below to check out the products I used and do some shopping. Use hostess code MUYP9EGY and I will send you a free gift! Even better, sign up for stamp club and you will get free projects and free stamps!
