We have a LOT of winter birthdays in my family; just had my husband’s, my brother-in-law’s is this weekend and my sister-in-law and father-in-law squeeze in before Christmas! Then we move into the early New Year and it’s another brother-in-law and myself! I’m never quite sure if I should be wrapping in birthday or Christmas paper LOL.
So yep, lots of winter birthdays and, I don’t know if you find the same, but flowers and butterflies don’t always seem appropriate. Not when it’s so cold and frosty outside. So I’m going with snowflakes aren’t just for Christmas :) I’m going to be giving this gift card envelope to my sister-in-law – they are saving for a new household item.
At first I was really taken with the stamping peeking through the windows, but then as I got my supplies out and started playing the doubled up tags with the offset vellum butterfly took a hold – I do like a good tag :) I stamped the chevron tag from Kelly Purkey’s Tis the Season set on to the matching tag from Simon Says Stamp and then added a small Wplus9 tag stamped with the woodgrain pattern from Kelly Purkey’s Hello Fall set. The sentiment is from my go to set; A Little Sentimental by Clearly Besotted Stamps. Finally I just switched out Keisha’s vellum butterfly for an Ashlynn snowflake from Simon. Oh and the last thing; the embossed polka dots in Keisha’s card became my polka dot patterned paper envelope.
