12 Cardinal Pictures
Today we have a handsome collection of Cardinal Pictures! These gorgeous red birds are always fun to spot as they are just so bright and colorful! Do you have any of these guys in your yard or neighborhood? We’ve recently moved to a new neighborhood, and we have a lot of construction going on, so sadly we don’t see a lot of birds right now. But I’m hopeful they will return as things get calmer around here.
Anyway, these Vintage Illustrations are perfect for adding a pop of red to your handmade crafts or creations. They can work really well in Holiday or Christmas projects too. I think these guys would make beautiful Handmade Christmas Cards or could be a lovely option for Decoupage projects. We also have some black-and-white images that you could color in yourself if you wanted to!
Red Cardinal Images
I think this guy is just marvelous! This is an exceptional Flying Cardinal Bird Image! Scanned from an 1896 advertising piece, I just love this glorious red bird! He is such a fancy looking fellow soaring through the air, and his feathers are truly spectacular!
This is a Beautiful Cardinal Bird Image! The marvelous Bright Red Cardinal Bird shown above is perched on a branch with some Green Leaves. This one is from a Circa 1840’s Natural History Book. Make sure you enlarge this one to see all of the incredible detail on this picture!
Natural History Bird Print
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This next one is a beautiful print with 2 lovely birds on it! One is red and the other is yellow. They look so pretty together. You could frame this one up for some instant art for your home.
Vintage Cardinal Pictures
Shown above is a charming antique advertising card, showing our favorite red bird perched on a floral branch! Pictured above is a lovely old Advertising Image showing a bright Red Cardinal on a branch. So cute that he appears to be singing! Displayed inside of a sweet branch frame in one corner is an exquisite Speckled Egg. The egg says it is the “natural size.”
Above is a charming Holiday Cardinal Picture! Perched on a Pine tree branch that is full of small Pinecones is a beautiful Red Bird! It almost looks like a nest. This little picture was scanned from a darling Circa 1922 Children’s Bird Book.
Bird Head Picture
Black and White Cardinal Illustrations
Here we have a charming Vintage Cardinal Illustration! Perched on the branch of a Pine Tree, this little bird is so adorable. Scanned from the same Circa 1922 Children’s Bird Book, this little picture is a splendid illustration. It is fairly simple in just black and white, but I thought it would be a fun one to color in or paint with watercolors.
Shown here is another sweet Vintage Line Art Drawing of a sweet Bird sitting on a Branch. This one is a beautiful chubby Cardinal! The leaves on the branch are so very tiny. The image comes from a 1940’s Children’s Coloring Book.
This last illustration is more sepia toned I guess than true black and white, but I still think it fits best in this section. In the scene above we see our pretty bird on a branch with a scene of trees and bushes behind him. I love the soft creamy tones on this one!
