The Cardinal is said to be a representative of a loved one after death. When you see a Cardinal, it means a loved one is visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration, as well as despair, to let you know they will always be with you.

This is a card for many occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, romance, homecoming, new season, fresh start, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, for bird watchers and gardeners, friendships, celebration, sympathy, memories, memorial, despair.
Cardinals appear when Angels are near.
You’re my Cardinal.
Hope is seeing the light, in spite of the darkness.
The most wonderful places in the world to be are in someone’s thoughts and in someone’s heart.
I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then.
We’ll make it through.
Today I speak with kindness.
I will act with intention.
I will choose no harm.
A beautiful soul is never forgotten.
They walk beside us. Still loved. Still missed.
The northern Cardinal is so well loved that it has been named the official bird of seven U.S. states. Bright red Cardinals are easily identified by even casual bird watchers, and are often seen frequenting backyards and bird feeders.
Cardinals are active songbirds and sing a variety of different melodies.
The bird is named for the red plumage of the male, which was said to look similar to a Catholic Cardinal’s red vestments.
