I love pictures of red cardinals in the snow in the winter! It’s just something you see during the holidays…on cards and in photos. So I thought I might try to make my own red cardinal in the snow card!
To create the snow background I used the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It totally looks like snow, don’t you think? And to create more of a snowy effect, I used dies from two different sets. The swirls (snow swirls!) are from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, and the large snowflakes themselves are from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies.
Now for the adorable little red (umm) cardinal. I know this bird isn’t really a cardinal, but he’s just SO cute!! And I don’t have a cardinal stamp, I have two cute birds from the Oh So Happy Stamp Set. So one of them just had to become a cardinal! I colored him with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends (and his beak and feet were colored with Daffodil Delight Blends!).
Don’t forget about the discounted and retiring items that are part of the Year-End Sales Event!
The Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies were used to make the snowflakes on today’s card, and they are retiring on December 30th. They have been my favorite dies from the Holiday Catalog! Here are some projects I’ve made using these great dies:
Be sure to scoop these up before they retire! Click on the photo below to go to my online store!

Today’s card is for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I’ve chosen the diagonal row from bottom left to upper right: heat embossed, patterned paper, and vellum.
I really like this Feeling of Christmas stamp set. It can be used all year round, wreaths are always beautiful! Here I’ve embossed the wreath with gold embossing powder for a holiday bling!
Pretty Pointer: The pretty red ornaments on this card are White Perfect Accents colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Isn’t that cool? You can color these White Perfect Accents any color you like!! How versatile is that?
Have you ever stamped on Vellum? It’s easy and adds a nice touch to any card. Here I’ve stamped the branch stamp from this set onto a 3/4″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Vellum. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a Real Red piece of card stock. These elements add interest and make your card fun!!
Important Note—This stamp set is being discontinued on January 2, 2018, and is available now only while supplies last. Don’t miss out on this cute wreath set!
