Cranberry Cardinals

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, cream and cranberry.

I immediately thought of a winter card when I saw the colour combo so I decided to play along with the CAS Christmas card challenge as well because the challenge theme this month is Christmas birds.

I used a older Memory Box die (Hadyn Twigs) and the cardinals from the Simon Says Stamp Chisholm wreath set. I used Fired Brick and Barn Door distress ink to colour the cardinals. They still look more red than cranberry in this photo though!

I added lots of Nuvo drops and a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Fabulous Christmas bird card, Lucie! I love the wonderful combination of different elements – die-cut branches, ink-colored cardinals, dimensional Nuvo drops, and cursive sentiment! Thank you so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Christmas!
