This card I made for two purposes. One was to make a birthday card and the other was to use the Splitcoast challenge SFYTT that I(Heart)2stamp had posted on her blog. I had made one other card for this challenge but I really wanted to try making a wintery card for this challenge as well.

I used the snow swirled bird from Inkadinkado. First I stamped the image in silver and embossed it. Then I reinked the image with my Baja Breese Craft Ink and embossed it in clear. Before I cut out the image, I dry embossed the background silver image using my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder. The background white you see behind the third layer, the thin baja breeze strip behind the image, and the three round circles are embossed using the snowflake folder. It is hard to see the dry embossing clearly in this picture. After sewing the card in blue and putting it together, I added the snowflakes and a blue bow.

Card Recipe

Paper: Stampin Up Ski Slope, Stampin up Baja Breeze, Bazill, Stampin up white, and Silver Glitter Paper

Stamp: Snow Swirled Bird from Inkadinkado

Ink: Silver (Encore), Baja Breeze

Accessories: Nestabilities, pearls, sheer glitter blue ribbon, Swiss Dot and Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, Me & My Big Ideas snowflake die-cut embellishments, blue thread, silver and clear embossing powder

I really enjoyed this layout challenge. It was a lot of fun. The card looks a little like a Christmas card but my mother in laws birthday is right before Christmas. Hope she likes it.
