Peekaboo Cardinal

August 8th, 2009 · 3 Comments


I swapped this card yesterday at the Stampin’ Addicts Meet & Greet in Salt Lake City! Hope the girls liked the window card I made with the A Cardinal Christmas stamp set. I wanted to use this particular designer paper, because it somehow looks as if the bird is sitting in a tree.

When you open the card, you’ll see I used the spotlighting technique with the Curly Label punch. It sure beats having to color the entire image when you’re making multiple cards for swapping!


Thanks for stopping by!

    you are so talented Vera! Of course she looks like she’s sitting in a tree- what a clever and creative idea! The spotlight technique not only made your swaps easier to color, but it looks so neat too. Very nice!
