Today I have another winter birthday card to share. The Seize the Birthday challenge included an added element - winter, hence the snowflake.
I chose Smoky Slate textured card stock for the base. The image is from the Festive Flurry stamp set and is heat embossed on Pool Party card stock with VersaMark and a combination of Smoky Slate embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment from the retired Snowflakes stamp set was heat embossed in the same way. I added this and a piece of Winter Frost designer paper to Island Indigo card stock. A piece of Silver Ribbon was added over the seam and attached on the back. This layer was then added to the card front. The finishing touches were a Rhinestone and a Frosted Finishes Embellishment (these are so pretty on winter cards). That's all there is to it; quick and easy. All I have to do is add a birthday greeting inside and this will be going out to a friend for her birthday next week. Thank you for coming by. I hope it's warmer where you are than it is here!!
