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!
Thanks for stopping by today! Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear what you think of the cardinal in the snow card 🙂

The Painted Harvest Stamp Set has been one of the most popular sets this fall…and, it’s been my favorite stamp set in the Holiday Catalog! So, how happy am I that it can be used for the holidays??
Look at this pretty wreath it makes! It’s stamped in Old Olive ink and the sweet little berries are stamped in Real Red ink. The “berries” are – I think – supposed to be sunflower seeds for fall, but they sure look great as holly berries!
