Christmas Cardinal


Hello and a very happy Monday to you. Today I'm sharing a card made with Deedee's digis Christmas Cardinal - a beautiful pre-colored digital image. What I love most about Deedee's digis is how quickly you can put a great card together in such a relatively short time! For this one, I used some retired SU! dsp, a green scalloped banner cut with a PTI die, and added some punched flowers and gemstones, and called this one done! I'm in full Christmas card mode these days as I donate quite a few to nursing homes, so cards like this will be made in duplicate & triplicate in almost no time.

I wanted to give you a quick reminder about Deedee's September digi of the month challenge , where you can earn the October digi set free just by playing along with us in September. The September digi release is available for a ridiculously reasonable price during the month of September too, just in case you didn't play along in August and get it free! Check all the details here. You can also check Deedee's latest release of digi stamps here or in her store here.

Have yourself a fantastic Monday and thanks for checking in!

Beautiful card Carol! I love this cardinal and I know how much Momma Mary loves them. I just used this image myself on a very simple and fast card. I haven't posted it yet though, sometime this week. I love DeeDee's precolored images, they are so fabulous! Hugs, Brenda

A wonderful bird image and the card just looks wonderful Carol. These days a precolored image can come in really handy and look awesome like this one. Hugz!

Very elegant, Carol! You found the perfect papers to accent the cardinal, and I really like the little buds as accents. Thanks so much for sharing! I'm thankful that you enjoy using the digis and find them easy to work with -- that means a lot -- thank you!
