You can see the pumpkins made with the Double Oval Punch here on the front of the card:

Lovely Pocket Card With Christmas Season Bundle

This card is so beautiful and so easy to make - you might want to make a whole bunch once you get started! Inspiration for this card is from a card I saw Rachel Tessman create. Measurements and supplies are listed below.

Here is a picture of the cards:

I love the Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon on this.  

This card is a simpler version:

A simple ribbon to the side, and no layers of foliage or evergreens - the images are just stamped on.

Here is how the stepped up version looks with the sentient pulled out:

The Christmas Season stamp set is one of the Distinktive stamp sets, which means the stamp is made to give the effect of lighter and darker areas on the stamped image.

See How to Make Cardinals in This Pretty Seasonal Card

Add the beauty of cardinals to your winter cards. In this video I show you how easy it is to make cardinals using the Birds & Branches stamp set. I also used Christmas Season stamp set to make this lovely Christmas Card. You can also use this card for a winter birthday, or just to say "hello." Supplies and measurements are listed below. 

The first card I made has Woodland Sparrows.  Love these sweet birds that have a beautiful song. I used Crumb Cake for the body and then stamped over that with Soft Suede.

This card I changed the birds to cardinals, and you can watch the video to see how. I used Cherry Cobbler for their bodies, Basic Black for the mask on their face, and added Smoky Slate to their back and wings.
