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!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
