Christmas Card Using CTMH Cardinal

Hello Friends!  I know it probably doesn't feel like Christmas this year to most of us.  Even though I don't travel or visit my family at Christmas; we normally spend time with my husband's son and ex-wife.  We have always gone out to eat on Christmas and on New Years; but this year, we are not able to due to COVID-19.  My husband is driving to a restaurant that we all love, to pick up take out and delivering it to the two houses, ours and theirs, wearing a mask.  What a difference a year can make, right?

I created this CTMH Christmas Cardinal, which is retired.  I don't think I have ever used it and decided it would look great for a Christmas card.  The inside was an interesting experience.  When I stamped it, the ink went under the pattern on the paper, making it look totally different than I expected.  I liked it; so I made a second card with a new CTMH Christmas Cardinal and did the same thing inside.  I love it.
