FREE Tutorial - Cardinal Birthday

Hi Everyone! I do hope you are all well and getting over the boxing day rush at the shops! I for one, never go! I don't like shopping centres on a good day so with everyone pushing and shoving to get bargains, I just can't do it! If you went shopping and scored a bargain, awesome but for me, I'm saving my money up for the new stamps coming January 3rd, 2020! You will have to start wearing sandals because your socks will be blown off! 

While we wait for the 3rd January to roll around, here is a free tutorial just for you! You don't have to use the stamp sets that have been stamped behind the bird, you could easily stamp and die-cut some leaves from other sets or dry emboss the card front. Does your sentiment have to be a birthday one? No! Just change the sentiment to suit your occasion. That sure is one cute bird. We don't have Cardinals in Australia so its fun to use a different bird than our usual birds. He looks so regal too!
