Winter Birthday

Brrrr! Its cold out there! It got down to -12 a couple nights ago. That's when I know for sure it is time to just stay in my craftroom and make cards. So that's what I did today. I've been making a lot of cards lately using as much Fun Stampers Journey products as possible (because I'm a Coach and want to promote FSJ whenever I can)...but not today! Today I decided to let loose and use anything I wanted! I did use some FSJ stuff because it is already my favorite! I took a sketch and a color theme as well as the winter theme and ran with it all!


Ingredients
Embossing folder: Sizzix "Flourish, Dots"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Bracket Edge", SweetStamps "Classy Deer"
Stamp: FSJ "Birthday Sketch"
Ink: FSJ "Blue Lagoon"
Adhesives: Scor-Tape, Scotch ATG gun/tape, Tombo Aqua Liquid Glue
Cardstock: Pizzazz Aplenty "Shimmer-Silver", FSJ "Blue Lagoon", Imaginesce
Fine glitter: FSJ "Sparkle Dust"
