Paper Lovin' Gals' #13

It's a bit chilly outside here in MD and this week at the Paper Lovin' Gals We've got a bit of a frosty inspiration photo for you all. But how cute is that bird?

I decided to go with a Snowy/Winter card and then I added a sentiment that will allow me to use it for a Birthday! I have a lot of Birthday's January it seems, including my own. This however is for my longtime friend Dawn. Her birthday is on the 2nd and it always pops in so fast after Christmas that her card is always late!

I used the set Season of Friendship and a Birthday one ( I can't find the box at the moment).. I started with a Cherry Cobbler card base and then I added a layer of Early Espresso and Whisper White. I stamped the tree in Early Espresso and then I added some Bashful blue snowflakes. The little bird is stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and I added some Glue to a few of the snowflakes to adhere some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

For the snow base I just tore a few pieces of Whisper White and glued them on at different heights and then I added some more dazzling Diamonds. Capturing that glitter was a bit tricky while I was outside. I also added some Cherry Cobbler brads to each side of my sentiment.

I don't usually do much to the inside of my cards.. But I'm trying to take the time to add a little something extra in there. So I put my Birthday sentiment on the inside. I stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White and then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and then punched a second in Cherry Cobbler and used it to Frame the White one.

Head over to the Paper Lovin' Gals Blog and see what the rest of the design team created this week.. We have a lot of different projects! We hope you'll join us this week.
