I enjoyed making this quick card because it was pretty easy to do plus I love glitter. I have this Cardinal embossing folder and placed the white cardstock into the folder and rung it through the cuddlebug machine. I coloured the cardinal for a focus on just him singing a happy song and made everything else just in white glitter.

It is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year but I don’t follow these statistics. I prefer to be bright and happy like this cardinal but I promise I won’t sing and hurt your ears. Oh and it took me a few years(I hang my head in crafty ignorance) to learn that CAS means clean and simple.

Have a great day everyone.

  2. Simple but elegant.
    Why is it the most depressing? I find 9/11 to be the day most people are down.

  9. I love this, in the shimmery white the tree looks like it's icy and the effect is really lovely.

  11. It is a very clean and simple card. (I had no idea that that meant that, as well.)

  12. Gosh, I had NO idea what CAS was until you told me. And I have NO idea what a Cuddle bug is, but I suspect it is a die cutter.

    I adore your cardinal. It's my favorite bird, so this spoke to me. It's a great card.

  13. I just read on Sandra's blog about your mother. I am SO sorry to read that. I know you were trying to prepare, but no matter how much you try, it is never soon enough. I am so glad you were with her when she died. I guess her getting better gave you a bit of false hope. My heart goes out to you tonight, dear Birgit. If there was something I could do, I would. Just know I am here if you need to "talk."
