Living in Georgia I see Cardinals everyday in my back yard. They are so pretty. Every year I send a Cardinal card to my Brother-In-Law and his family back in Connecticut as he is a huge St Louis Cardinal Fan. This is this years card.
This card used Spellbinders Floral Oval, Large Oval, and Holly Motif Corners. Martha Stewart Holly punch around the page and branch punch. The plain oval die cut was embossed as well as all the white background.
The berries on the background of the CottageCutz die were cut on red metallic paper. The flowers are recollection and were sent to me by my friend Pam. Thank you Pam! The leaves are the "Greenery" die from CottageCutz.
Thanks for stopping by today to view my Christmas Creation. Have a wonderful day. See you in the gallery!

I knew this was you before I read your name! This card is awesome. Love the white, red and green, and who can resist a beautiful red cardinal. So many beautiful details. What love you put into this card, and I am sure your brother and his family look forward to receiving your beautiful card each year. Gorgeous!
Happy Holidays, Carol
