I love to look outside my window and see a cardinal…it immediately puts me in a good mood. And that’s what inspired this card made for my Eyelet Outlet post using the Cardinal Brads.
I used a cut file I purchased in the Silhouette store, but altered it a bit because I can never leave anything well enough alone. I used Whisper White card stock for the base. The blue panel is also Whisper White, which I filled with color on the front and left the back white. I added the cardinal brads…don’t they just pop right off the page! My greeting was printed in red using the Channel font and matted on red.
Here’s a closer look at the cardinals and the greeting. Don’t those cardinals look just like the real thing?
And here’s the inside of the card. The same filled with blue with the sentiment printed on top. I cut another tree to place on the side with another cardinal to tie it all together.
