Christmas Cardinal

Today's post is a card I made for the VC Rocks! card contest. I ended up tying
for first place with my buddy Deborah Robb with this card. I really love the Stampin'
Up! stamp set called Christmas Cardinal, it is just so pretty, but I combined it with
the new Stampin' Around music note wheel, and the new Bells and Boughs set in the Holiday Mini which just went live yesterday. This card was a lot of work, but I love
how it turned out.

This card actually is part of a swap my upline was hosting with some of her friends
that are some of Stampin' Up!s top demos. I am so flattered that I was asked to participate in a swap with these awesome ladies.

If you will look closely, you will see the Finial Press embossing folder, a sizzlet die, the large Oval punch, some of the new Victoria Lace along with Real Red satin ribbon and several of our new Basic Pearls on this card. Hope you have enjoyed today's project. I would truly love to hear your thoughts on this card.

Thanks for dropping in today and hugs to you and yours.

  3. Carolyn, I loved this card when you shared it on VCRocks! Your new blog design looks fab, too!
