Christmas Cardinal

So the media card does not want to work in the new computer. The larger Smart Media one reads fine but the SD card won't. All my food and recipes are on that card. I decided I would go to the store and buy a new card to rule out the card being the problem and there is a sale at Office Max. Only none of the items I want at the store are stocked. They are in the ad on sale. But I was told there were other items that were the same (and more costly) that would work. Bait and switch?? I will go to Office Depot tomorrow (they have the exact item at the same sale price). So tired of dealing with local retail.

I wish you could see this card in person because the layers just pop out at you. Sadly, the very dark green almost black base card looks like it's not there. This Inkadinkado stamp (I remembered!! no brain fart this time) is from a Christmasy winter set. I stamped in a medium mossy green and then re-stamped and used the phrase from Cranberry. This is pop-dotted over the original stamping. The holly leaves were punched from velvet paper and I used that nasty glitter glue from the dollar bin at Joann's to highlight berries and the cardinal. Punched the corners, edged in green inks, pop dotted it on dark red. Corner cuts of silvery card stock were positioned on the base card and all the layers came together in perfect harmonyyyyyyyyyyy.
See you later with more very early Christmas cards (I am being optimistic here).


  1. Jan your card is very pretty amd elegant! I'm loving the stamp and the layers are awesome.

  2. Oooh, I LIKE! I've never used the corner punches but man oh man that's a nice stamp! FYI, it's now -1 degrees F as I type this! Brrrrrr!


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
