Christmas/Winter Easel Card

I want to share this with you, if you love Cardinals and outdoors then you will like what you see.  I bought a frame at Michael's and inserted this bird image and decorated it from there.  Some ribbon and flowers and and and, well you folks know what you are seeing and Tis the Season.  I am feeding the birds this year as always and I saw a pair of Cardinals outside on the feeders but I do have to say that I am feeding the squirrels just as much, seems there is a line up out there and a pecking order.  I just so happened to be home and saw two male pheasants out there as well and boy they are really pretty.   Without further ado....  I entered this card in the following challenges:   Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge83


  1. The card is just beautiful!!
    How long does it take you to make a card?
    Thank you for sharing
    Happy Holidays!!

  2. Suzann,
    Well, this one I think took 4 - 5 hours. I usually break it down to two evenings. The front is one evening and on the card, the greeting area and envelope is another. It takes awhile to pick the papers and embellishments and do your arrangement. Thank you Suzann for stopping by and leaving a comment, Happy Holidays to you as well, Jane.

  3. Wow this is beautiful...Stunning !!

  4. Hello Jane - it is so lovely to see you - and your gorgeous card! I had to laugh about your feeder - it sounds like you have an Ark at your house! LOL! I love this festive card - you image and the details are divine - I love that frame!! Easel cards are gorgeous aren't they and this is no exception! Love it! Thank you for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sektch Challenge this week - we appreciate your support! {{{hugs}}}

    Happy Christmas Jane, to you and your family!

  5. This is such a beauty! Glad somebody else takes hours to develop a card. Can you tell me how you do your dimensional envelopes?

  6. I an not sure how to reply to an anonymous so hopefully you will come back and read it here. I use a template. You can purchase one from Priscilla at her store over at Midnight Madness, she runs the sketch challenge. Perfect every time.

  7. WOW!
    This is FANTASTIC!
    What a beautiful card, my Cardinals are back again this year and it always makes me feel happy when I see them again. I LOVE you card.

  8. Oh my goodness girl....when you post, you REALLY make it worth while to see!! Every time I see your creations, I always say...WOW!!! What can I say besides stunning and I love everything about it!! TFS! HUGS

  9. A very beautiful and elegant one. Love all the details and that gorgeous cardinal. What a beautiful sight it must be at your house to see all those winter animals. Would love to see pics of the pheasants if you happen to get one.

  10. Jane this is gorgeous. I snagged a few of these frames from Micheal's about a month ago myself. I thought they were so pretty. I probably won't get to use them until after I love your image and beautiful papers. 5-6 hours sounds about right to me. It is such a process isn't it!!! lol Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
