Do you want to learn how to make a cardinal card using the flash card system? I have been creating with the Free as a Bird stamp set a bunch but I found myself coloring in the same colors as the Designer Series Paper. As beautiful as that paper is, I decided to go with a cardinal card instead and I LOVE how it turned out. Today’s Flash Card is simple and fun to create.

Cardinals have always been my favorite bird. I just can’t resist that deep, rich red color. Poppy Parade was the absolute perfect match!

You guys know that the Stampin’ Blends have become my go-to coloring tools lately and this is from the girl who hates to color. The Blends are just addicting! Try them but you’ve been warned… you will become addicted too.
Writing on the inside of a dark color can be tricky so there are times I do add a layer of white or vanilla to the inside of a card.
  • Poppy Parade – 4 ¼” x 11″, score at 5 ½” 
  • Basic Black – 2 ¾” x 4 ¼”
  • Whisper White – 2 ½” x 4″, cut to ½” x 4″
            • Optional: 3 ¾” x 5″ for the inside
The supplies needed are pretty simple. Ready to start an order so you can make this Cardinal card? It’s easy! Just click a pic!
