Merry Christmas Cardinals

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! You all know that I create Christmas crafts all year long, and this pretty card features our Cardinal Brads, Cardinal Profile Brads, Female Cardinal Brads and Clear Jewel Bling Strips. I absolutely love cardinals and thoroughly enjoyed creating this card with my Scan N Cut. Many people believe that a loved one is watching over us if a cardinal appears, and that’s what I always think of when I see one! ;)

I cut the card base from American Crafts White cardstock, and the remaining pieces from CutCardStock Basis Gray, Basis Red, Dolphin, and Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock. I added a Cardinal Brad, a Cardinal Profile Brad and a Female Cardinal Brad to the birch trees, and then added a Clear Jewel Bling Strip down each side for a little festive bling.

Here’s another angled shot.

And one more look… folded flat for mailing! This card is amazing and the three kinds of cardinal brads I used are some of my favorites in the Eyelet Outlet store!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. It’s so pretty! It’s as if I’m looking out the window at the cardinals I see in the winter at my feeders! Absolutely beautiful and how great to have your Christmas sprinkled throughout the year so your not panicked at the last minute! Nicely done!
