Country Cardinal Christmas

I just absolutely love cardinals, don't you?  They are such beautiful birds, and are surprisingly cousins to the blue jay, and both are members of the crow family.  I have learned several things new when I "googled" them for colorings or info.

My sewing machine is coming in handy for stitching on cards, and the effect is awesome.  Some are better than others, but...

I collected some pinecones while on vacation on the coast of Virginia in September, and learned by "googling" them that the projections all around the surface of a pinecone are called "wings".  No joke!  When I saw a card somewhere with a 3-D paper pinecone on it, I took it as a challenge to figure out how it was made.  This is my second try at, and I'm pretty proud of the way it came out!  I can't thank God enough for giving me the gift of creativity!  All credit and glory belong to Him!


  1. Wow, great design, that pinecone is amazing.

  2. Oh wow Clare this is one very beautiful and classy card, awesome work.
