Mistletoe Monday #8-2016

Today's Mistletoe Monday Challenge:

Can you believe it's the end of February already and LEAP day too?
Only 299 days til Christmas.

I combined Riding Hood Red and Whisper White by Stamping Up to make this Christmas turned birthday card.  I had a Christmas greeting and sentiment all set to go but changed it at the last minute, thinking about all those people who have Christmas/winter birthdays.  Using the "Harrington" font, I created the greeting on a 4" x 5 1/4" panel with rounded corners, offsetting it to the left, knowing I wanted to use the Northern Flurries embossing folder.  Alas, I realized I offset it to the wrong side if I wanted to emboss on the I debossed the card front instead and I really like it.  I love it when mistakes turn successful!  I added three sizes of rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes and I added one Riding Hood Red snowflake made from a cut file purchased in the Silhouette Design Store.  That's the front, but the action is on the inside...let's take a look.  The pop-up snowflake is a cut file by Jen Adkins.  I used the same font to create the sentiment and used the Fiskars three-corner snowflake punch.

Happy Crafting


  1. What a cool card. You did a great job turning a mistake into an asset. I am getting better about that and not just throwing it away and starting over.

    1. It took me too many years of tossing mistakes in the trash for me to realize that no one else knew the original concept, so it's not a mistake! Slow to learn apparently, LOL
