Happy New Year! This card could have said CHAMPAGNE in honor of the new year, but it was a HOT CHOCOLATE kind of day when I made it. I love the Balloon Celebrations sentiments and they worked perfectly with this card. And since my birthday is in January, I thought, this is a card I would love to get for a January birthday!
I experimented with first scoring the card top and then running it through the brick wall embossing folder. It worked! The card pops up to a stand up card! I am sooo happy these Swirly Snowflake framelets were carried over from the Holiday Mini! With temperatures hovering close to zero, frozen silver Snowflakes seemed appropriate! The marina mist DSP is from the new spring mini catalog paper called Sweet Soiree. The back of the designer's series paper (DSP) is really pretty also with silver highlights! It was hard to choose which side to use.
