Happy Birthday Cardinal Card


At first look, this looks like a Christmas Card. We have a family member who just loves cardinals and the special symbolism behind them like this:

“Cardinals are seen during all 12 months of the year. … Native American lore holds that if you have encountered a cardinal, expect good luck to follow, possibly in 12 hours, 12 days, or at noon or midnight.”


So when her birthday came up I decided to make a card for her. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my cardinal rubber stamp so I looked for pictures of them and saw one sitting on a branch. I drew this on watercolor paper, painted it and put it on this card. I used a happy birthday sticker from Hobby Lobby on it and it is finished. I hope she likes it and has a wonderful birthday!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Christmas Eve!!
