Christmas Cardinal

Hi Crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
Today I have a Christmas card to share with you that I made with a few challenges in mind.

The challenges that I am entering are:
(I used a bow, green and an image)


Here is a look at the card that I created:

If you come to my blog often, you've probably read that I made it a personal goal to make at least one Christmas card a month this year to try and get ahead, at least by a little lol! When I saw the sketch for Mojo Monday, I knew this chubby little cardinal would be perfect to put inside that circle focal point! I started with a red cardbase and covered it with some kraft patterned paper from Echo Park. I added a strip of green and white patterned paper from the same paper collection so it would match perfectly and then rounded one of the top corners of my card. I added a bit of doodling along the perimeter with a black sharpie pen and then started working on my image. I printed the digi stamp from 2 Cute Ink onto a piece of Hammermill Digital paper and colored it with my Copic markers. I used a circle die to cut it out and then backed it onto a red circle that I also cut out using a die. I adhered it to my card base and added a bit of glitter for the snowflakes and snow on the branch. I stamped my greeting, used more circle dies to cut it out, popped it up with foam tape and added a little crochet thread bow. I completed my card with a few white Nuvo drops.

I think this turned out so incrediby cute and since there isn't a lot of dimension, it will be super easy to mail! Gotta love that, especially during the holidays!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!
