Cardinals and Christmas go together like coffee and cream. Speaking of which, this Coffee Art Cardinal Christmas Card uses a little bit of coffee for coloring. If you are looking for some beginner-level coffee art ideas, this DIY Christmas card is a nice project to start with. You will also use a combination of paper crafting materials like stamps and die cuts. Overall this card does take some skill but the results are beautiful. The red and brown cardinals have a majestic and festive appeal that will remind everyone that it's Christmas.

Cardinals are so pretty, aren't they? I love using them on holiday cards. The red of the male is so beautiful. I like that this card has a pair of cardinals on the front. It shows family being together during the holiday season, even if it is a bird family.
