I have lots of Christmas stamps and certainly don't need any more, but each year I add a couple more to my stash. This year one of the sets I fell in love with was Christmas Cardinals from My Favorite Things. It took me awhile to get them home, but I received them recently, and here are 2 cards I made for this year with them.

supplies: white and Lipstick Red cardstock, unknown Doodlebug dp inside letters, MFT Christmas Cardinals bird, partial sentiment, and holly sprig, Simon Chunky Merry die, adhesive foam to pop up bird
I kept this one fairly simple, using the side-facing cardinal and the holly sprig, along with a partial stamping of one of the sentiments in the set. It worked nicely with my new Chunky Merry die!
supplies: white and Lipstick Red cardstock, unknown red snowflake dp, a retired Echo Park Snow Flurry embossing folder, Christmas Cardinals bird and holly sprig, sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio Adore Alpha dies and Wplus9 Hand Lettered Holiday
This one's lots busier. I've used this retired snowflake embossing folder many times this year - love the scale of it! This is the other bird in the set, and I cut apart 2 stampings of the holly sprig and spread them around. Everything on this card is glued down, so it's nice and flat for mailing.
This card qualifies for the current Let's Squash It challenge, to use a Christmas embossing folder and Christmas stamps.
I'll be sharing more Christmas cards off and on into mid-December, but I think I'm officially finished making them for this year! That's a good feeling!
Thanks for coming by today!
