Cardinal Merry Christmas!

Hello TRC Fans!  Today I have a fun Christmas card for you.  I used the supplies from this month's Creative Cafe' Kit - Creative Christmas.  I also used a stamp included in the bonus stamp set -  Christmas is Coming.  I love Cardinals so this was one of the first cards I created using the kit!

I used the different sized circle punches I had in my stash and punched out a bunch of circles using different patterns from the paper pad.  I arranged the circles into a tree shape.  I stamped the Cardinal image onto white cardstock and colored it with my markers.  I cut them out so I could adhere one onto the tree and one along the bottom of the card.  I created the base of the card using red cardstock, cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2".  I cut the white cardstock layer to 4 x 5 1/4".  I stamped the sentiment along the bottom using black ink.  I added a 1/2" strip of red patterned paper and using some 1/8" Scor-tape, I added the green ribbon (included in kit).

Here is a close-up....

This is another card that would be easy to mail!  I really love those kind of cards!  Thanks for stopping by today.
