Cute Christmas Cardinal Alternative Cards using the November 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I loved making these cute Christmas Cardinal Handmade Cards using elements from the November 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up. I was inspired by one of the alternative projects suggested in the kit and made my own version. Then created my own card using some of the same elements. I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this months kit.

It is Paper Pumpkin Week here on CreativeChelsey. This is the fourth tutorial this week. Make sure to keep coming back for more.

Card #1- Single Cardinal
1- On the Pool Party card base with Pool Party ink, stamp the snowflake stamp randomly around the front of the card.
2- On the snowflake tag, adhere some scrap paper on the back over the punched hole so the circle doesn't come out. Then adhere the snowflake tag with dimensionals to the bottom right corner of the card with about 0.5" space on the right and left.
3- Adhere the cardinal to the snowflake tag on the upper left.
4- Add 2 sprigs at the base of the cardinal - see image
5- On the large white banner stamp Peace in Shaded Spruce at the top.
6- On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the Love & Joy in Real Red.
7- Cut out the Love and Joy and adhere it below the Peace on the white banner.
8- Wrap 20" of silver twine to the back of the greeting.
9- With dimensionals adhere the greeting below the bird and centered on the tag.
10- Add 3 small snowflakes and sequins to the card.

All done!

Card #2- Two Cardinal
1- From October 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit I used the wood grain paper from the inside of the envelopes. If you don't have one try it with Crumb Cake Cardstock.
2- To make the second Cardinal in reverse - Flip the Cardinal so the white side is up and use a sponge dauber and Real Red ink and daub the ink all over. You will need to do multiple layers to get a deep even red all over. Let dry - try not to touch it as the ink will transfer easy until it is completely dry.
3- Stamp the Love & Joy in Shaded Spruce on a small white banner from the kit
4- Stamp the snowflakes randomly on the Pool Party Gradient rectangle in Pool Party ink.
5- Trim the envelope down to 5.25" x 3.5"

6- Adhere the wood grain paper to the center of the Early Espresso card base.
7- Add 20" of Green Ribbon and 20" of silver twine to the back of the Pool Party rectangle. Make a "z" shape by going back and forth. Trim any excess.
8- Add the Pool Party rectangle to the center of the card with dimensionals.
9- Adhere the first Cardinal on the left of the card, place it so the head of the bird is near the top of the Pool Party rectangle. Make sure the tail doesn't extend beyond the edge of the card.
10- Add the second Cardinal to the right side of the card. Tilt it's body so the head of the bird is below the first birds. Again make sure the tail doesn't go past the edge of the card.
11- Add 4 Springs to the back of the 0.5" strip of Early Espresso cardstock. Bottom left and Top right sides. Adhere it to the bottom of the Pool Party rectangle

12- Add the last 2 sprigs to the right side of the greeting. Add to the card with dimensionals on the left of the strip and under the first bird.
13- Add sequins

All done!
