A Whole New Year

Hard to believe... 2014! The year starts off with our youngest daughter's birthday...  She has always loved the mountains and the snow and coming home for the holidays. This year when she came with her family, she really needed to feel us wrap around her, and we did... It was wonderful! 

Here's my card for her-

The swing card is a favorite of mine, although I wanted to make it bigger than the last one. This card is about 5" square when it is closed up. The paper measures 5 x 9 at the onset.  The card base is Neenah solar white 110 lb. The next layer is a cloud pattern paper that has been around forever.

The trees are PTI's  Evergreens die- cut in SU's Always Artichoke and Old Olive, Dazzling Details is added to the tops of the trees to add some shine. The Lil' Inker snowflakes are cut from glitter paper.  There are actually three - four layers of trees on the front of the card. Then there is one on the two sections of the bottom. I was afraid it looked to bare, but in reflection I think it helped to emphasize the sentiment! 

The sentiment is embossed in white. In the picture it is difficult to read but says... " Sending Warm Wishes of Happiness and Cheer"  and on the inside... 

..."and everything you need for another amazing year!" I decided to add three hearts from SU's Hearts A Flutter embosslits.

Happy birthday, Stephanie... Truly blessed, we are!
