Video: Creating a Wintery Birthday Card
Hello! Charlene here and today I'm delighted to share the step-by-step process behind a wintery birthday card I created using the Holiday Flourishes stamp set. This project showcases a thoughtful combination of colors, textures, and techniques to produce an elegant and celebratory card.

First I used Hero Hues Premium Cardstock in Arctic and Paradise, cutting strips with the Sentiment Strips Fancy Die. I then glued the strips in an alternating pattern onto an A2-sized piece of cardstock using Precision Glue, forming the foundation for the card's dynamic background.
The focal point of the card is an intricately stamped flourish from the Holiday Flourishes stamps. I colored in the flourish with alcohol ink markers to coordinate with the cardstock strips. The flourish was cut out using the Arches Infinity Dies, with additional arches created from silver Glitter Paper and from the striped background created with the strips.
Next, I stamped all of the sentiments from the Everyday Sentiment Strips onto Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock and cut them out using the Sentiment Strips Fancy Die. I chose a happy birthday sentiment, but this card could be used for a number of different occasions!
To add fun detail to the card base, I stamped small flourishes using Granite Core Ink. I love dimension on a card so I layered the striped arch with foam tape, followed by the silver glitter arch. The stamped flourish arch was glued directly to the silver glitter arch. Lastly, I used foam tape to attach the sentiment strip.
That wraps up this wintery birthday card creation! The subtle interplay of colors, the delicate flourish, and the thoughtful layering of elements all contribute to a card that not only celebrates a special day but also captures the essence of winter's charm. Happy crafting!Click on products to shop:
