3 D

Colorfusers January Blog Hop - Brrrr! Winter!


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.





Daisy Delight Meets Merry Cafe!

Apple Cider reminds me of fall!  With the weather getting cooler in Wisconsin, thoughts of fall colors pop into my head.  I needed to create a 3 D swap for a retreat next week and this project came to mind.  The Painted Harvest DSP with the Merry Cafe words worked well with the Espresso paper cups and toppers.  The daisy punch in fall colors tied the whole project together!


And of course, what to fill it with?  Either a pumpkin spice latte or apple cider Keurig cup!


Drink up!
