Warm Winter Wishes....

I have linked this project as one of my favorites to
Check out some favorite past projects and maybe you will
find a wonderful design that you may have missed -
I know I have!

My SIL has a December birthday coming up next week, so it was time
to get busy and make her special card.

I started with my circle easel card template that I have saved in DS.
The scalloped circles were cut in graduated sizes and embossed
with CB swirls and happy birthday folders.

The tree is a leftover from another project and I think it was
cut from WW - embossed with snowflake CB folder.
"Warm Winter Wishes" is also from WW.
The skates are from the Christmas cart and the boot and layers are embossed
with swiss dots and swirls respectively.

The skates are popped for dimension and finished off with a piece of
ecru lace and memory thread.

The inside holds a special message and a holly (WW) enshrouded
Happy Birthday that is embellished with the MS branch punch.

Happy Birthday is from ACY and is resized in
DS to fit the sign back.

The finished project that will be mailed out next week.

I am pleased with this end result and hope
my SIL will enjoy it in celebration of her birthday.

  6. Visiting from Robins Creative Cottage Tuesday Link Up Party. Like the ice skating easel style card. Especially like the detail and the lace. I've made an easel style card but not a circle which is a wonderful idea.
