I have seen Cardinals when we were in Minnesota but they are not a Christmas symbol in the UK so I have only made one card which is actually travelling to the states.

Nov. 1, 2014 on the MFP Stamp Shop blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!)

Here's the Design Team:


  1. Lovely and very creative use of the swing card fold. Well done.

  2. Wow - an awesome card shape with some awesome colors, papers, and images. You really put the set to good use on this. Beautiful work Janine! Hugz

  3. Just beautiful Jannine! Love the way you created your swing card.

  4. Your swing card turned out really nice...
    Great coloring.
    Well done

  5. Your accordion card is very cleverly decorated. I love it!!!

  6. So very pretty, I love the double flip card or is it an accordion? Either way, I love it.

  7. Janine, a really clever way to showcase the images!

  8. Wow--I have never seen this kind of card before.

  9. WOWZA! What a stunning card! What a lucky recipient!!!!! It sort of makes me want to travel to the USA now!!! I think many people in the UK know that the Christmas bird in the USA is a cardinal and wouldn't mind receiving a cardinal themed card. So go and play some more with it! :O)

  10. Janine,
    Your card is really lovely and elegant. And, I do believe the person in the U.S. receiving this card will be doing a happy dance!!

  11. What a fancy and creative card design! This would be something one would keep forever!

  12. My, oh my!!! This is amazing!! What a beautiful design and lovely images and coloring!!! What a work of art!
