LEARN HOW TO MAKE CUTE CHRISTMAS CARDINAL LAYERED CARDS USING YOUR CRICUT
You know the saying. If you see a cardinal, a loved one is paying you a visit.
I think we never forget our family who have passed on but they seem to be especially thought of during the holidays. Maybe it is the tradition and nostalgia of Christmas, the family gatherings, the love and joy.
My mom used to paint cardinals a lot. She passed in 2017 and I have grown to love these beautiful birds even more!
I wanted to create a sweet winter scene for this card where the cardinals really pops!
This card can be made on any of the Cricut cutting machines. However, the included envelope can only be made using a Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker.
In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
