I was so happy when SU came out with this set, A Cardinal Christmas. My grandma loved cardinals and I couldnt wait to make her a card with it. Unfortunately she passed before I could do that, so the Christmas following her passing I made a cardinal Christmas card for everyone in the family in honor of Grandma.
The sketch might look familiar, as I am once again playing along with the current Paper Players challenge.
I pierced around the main image panel and also around the seniment panel. I was going to do some piercing and stitching around the outer edges but since I am going to make several of these cards I decided I was too lazy to do all that :) I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the berries.
