Christmas Cardinals

I love Cardinals, especially at Christmas time. I always have several on my tree. I love both of these. One being more whimsical from Inkadinkado and the other very traditional on the wreath from Stampin' Up. On the first tag I embossed around the bird with a Cuttlebug folder and then colored him with Copics and watercolor pencils. The other is colored with colored pencils and the berries were done with dimensional paint. I stamped it off center since I was planning to do a flower on the side but I felt that it was too busy. I added velvet ribbon and a button instead so it looks a little "off" but oh well. The bottom is trimmed with the Stampin' Up scalloped edge punch.
