I love cardinals and the stampin up a cardinal Christmas stamp is very pretty! This is the card that I made this year for Christmas. I wanted an easy card (not alot of coloring) so I stamped the cardinal in real red and inked the edges in real red ink also. I think it turned out very nice!
Paper: red, very vanilla, kraft, and Chocolate chip
ink: real red, versa mark, black
real red ribbon from stampin up (it has polka dots on the other side!)
silver snowflake brad (had to use a white punched snowflake w/a silver brad, also-I ran out of the snowflake brad about half way through make my cards and couldn't find more anywhere!)
