Snowflake Birthday Card

A couple of my family members celebrate their birthdays in December and it's always hard not to give them something Christmas-y. So I made this birthday card trying not to look like a Christmas card but still convey a wintry wish.

I used a card sketch from over at Sketchy Thursdays for the layout of my card. The snowflake cardstock is from the Imaginisce Build-a-Card kit. I cut out the snowflakes on my Cricut with the When it's Cold Outside mini cartridge. I heat embossed the top layer of the snowflake with some cherry red embossing powder. It's way more glossy looking IRL. The sentiment is a stamp from my Scrappy Cat birthday set that a dear friend game me for my last birthday. The crackled paint paper is a scrap from my magnetic memo board project. The ribbon is from my stash and the 3 gold dew drops (golden berry) are from my store.
