Snowy Friends

>> Sunday, January 28, 2018

Hi Everyone,

New stamps have been released at DRS Designs and as soon as I got this image of a Snowy Birdhouse (530H), I knew I wanted to make a birthday card with my brother-in-law in mind.  He's a total bird fan with a January birthday, so every year I try to incorporate birds onto his card.  This stamp combo is perfect for him!  

I colored up the image with my Copic markers, die cut it and added some glitter glue and mini snowflakes to the image.  The background was created using the Pine Bough stamp and I added and embossed strip embellished with the same glitter glue.

I stamped the Extra Tweet Birthday Greeting (547D) and die cut it, adding a bit of green sponging, and I chose a strip of red paper to help anchor it to the card.  

In keeping with the snowy theme, I made and easy friendship too.  I dry embossed a white frame and attached it to a blue background that was stamped using the Interlocking Snow stamp and blue ink.  

I stamped, fussy cut and colored up the Simply Snowman, attaching it inside the frame.  I bought myself some speech bubble dies (a Christmas present for me, from!)  and used one for the Flakey Friends Winter Greeting.  Easy peasy!

Hoping your day is super chill!

How cute are these, Karin! Love all the layers & backgrounds. I bought several speech bubble dies last year & I love them. I'm laughing at your present to yourself nephew did that when he was about 7. They had a Santa secret shop at school so he bought himself a harmonica. Wrapped it up, put "from Nate to Nate" & put it under the tree. We all got a big laugh from that.
