I'm trying to wean myself away from Christmas cards. It's really hard for me since I really do love Christmas. While flipping through some files on my computer, I came across this picture. I have no clue where it came from but thought it would make a very nice Winter Birthday Card. I have two friends who have birthdays in January and thought it would be perfect.
Once I had the picture printed out, I scouted around for the perfect sketch to inspire me. And I found it at Repeat Impressions.
I used a wood grain Embossing Folder by Close to my Heart, for the background and pulled the blue from the picture to use for the background paper, which is Sky blue. A retired paper from CTMH. I couldn't get the look I wanted with the banner cut, so I punched both sides of the white CS and stamped Birthday Wishes on it and heat embossed it.
I added three red enamel hearts to the upper right corner.
