Sweater and Snowflakes Birthday Card
We got a bit of snow yesterday and are expecting more today. Perfect weather for cable knit sweaters and crafting indoors!
The “Dancing Snowflake Tile” die is from Poppy Stamps, and the “Happy Birthday Friendship Script” die is from Memory Box. These were cut twice and layered to make the die cuts thicker. I used Metallic Gold card stock from Gift Boutique and heavy weight cream card stock by Recollections.
The background was embossed with the Stampin’ Up Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder (retired?).
I really struggled to get a good photo of this card. Capturing the shine of the mirror card stock without seeing reflections of me, my camera, or the lights in the photo and while still seeing the texture of the embossed background was quite a challenge! I think the “darkness” behind the snowflakes is my black shirt – lol! The shine on that panel (like the greeting) is quite pretty in real life.
This card is 5 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches and requires a custom envelope and trip to the post office to mail. I used my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch, started with a 9 1/8 inch square piece of paper, and punched/scores at 4 1/2 inches.
Here is an A2 sized sample I made with different card stock…
For this one, I used Gina K Designs Metallic Gold card stock (which has more of a matte finish). The greeting was made with the “Doodle Happy Birthday” die from Poppy Stamps. The off-white heavy weight card stock is “Butter Mints” by Bazzill.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!

Beautiful cards. Metallic CS is very hard to photograph, but you got a good picture. I really like the EF. It does look like a warm cozy sweater.
Such beautiful cards! You did great getting the metallic cs photo. Love the cozy sweater embossing.
Now that it is February, nice to see the winter whites. Love the shine of the metal paper.
Love those cards! Really captures the essence of Winter! Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful cards – love both of them. Really like the EF folder!
So gorgeous and elegant looking and perfect for a winter birthday.
Gorgeous cards. I’m loving the winter white and gold combination. The cableknit sweater embossing folder and snowflakes are definitely needed today.
Both cards are absolutely beautiful. You did a great job photographing the metallic. Cable knit & snowflakes….what could be cozier.
Wow! Awesome cards and I really like the design in both. The metallic gold is just right with the cream CS. Very elegant and captures the wintery feel perfectly.
Oh, these are gorgeous!
