Warm Winter Wishes

I have been wanting to post this birthday card for weeks, but I had to wait to give it to my sister, Carla, before I could.  Her birthday was the end of January, but do to a snow storm we had postponed celebrating with the family until this past Sunday.  NOW, I can post this card.  I just love how it came out...

I started out with Gina K's white cs and put part of through SU's "Pretty Print" embossing folder.  I then  cut out part of a page of DP from an old pack of 8x8 "Text Prints" paper from Die Cuts With A View and then wrapped the snowflake ribbon around the card and mounted it flush on SU's "Bashful Blue" cs. 

I then used the stamp from PTI's "Winter Hills". and colored the barn with Copic's R27 and the barn door and walkway with Copic's C5 and the house with Copic's B12 markers.  I then used a glue marker and covered the hills with it and then sprinkled Tim Holtz's Distress Glitter in "Clear Rock Candy."  Here's a close up of that part of the card.

I then mounted it on silver paper and then SU's "Bashful Blue" and mounted it on the card. 

I don't usually use the cool colors...but the dp paper was calling these colors and I just love how it turned out.  I also have to confess that PTI's "Winter Hills" is one of my favorite stamp sets, too! 

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Beautiful Sue! LOVE that design paper...it works perfectly for this card. And Winter Hills is one of my favorite sets too...great minds think alike! :0)

  2. This is so pretty, Sue! How appropriate that a snowy scene postponed your celebration!
