Cardinal Ornament

Hello everyone! I'm here to share a Christmas card with a cardinal. 


The Cardinal is a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped it with Hero Arts black ink and colored it with my markers and cut it out in the shape of an ornament. I added drops of Nuvo Drops pale Gold to give it a shaken snow globe effect. I added a few pine branches, cut out using the Martha Stewart punch and a few pearls as berries. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps' Unto Us stamp set and I embossed it with Hero Arts gold embossing powder.

I hope you liked this easy and simple Christmas card. Do let me know what you think. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Your comments are much appreciated.

Lovely Christmas card Berina! Wonderfully coloured Cardinal bird. Making the image into a bauble was a great idea. I love the holly with the pearls for berries too. Debra x

What a very lovely card! Cardinals always remind me of my aunt as they were her favorite birds! Thank you for reminding me of cherished times with her! Thank you for playing along with Retro Rubber, however, I am having difficulty seeing the sketch in your lovely card. Thank you and please join us again.
