Happy Birthday to my brother!

snow swirled card-a-lope
Today my little brother turns 25! Here's to him! So tomorrow I can start decorating for Christmas, yea! Ever since we were little Mom would start decorating only after my brother's birthday, so here's to tradition! Outside it's even snowing. I'm definitely in a merry mood and the creative juices are flowing. Here is my creation for today:

On the weekend I noticed on Paper Pleasing Ideas a really neat tutorial for a card-a-lope, check it out here. Very easy to put together and using the envelope for the base makes the pocket very hand to hold a gift certificate. And I just happened to be needing a gift certificate holder!


Supplies used:
Stamps: Snow Swirled, All Holidays
Ink: Old Olive textured paper, Chocolate Chip, versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Ski Slope Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, stampin dimensionals, silver embossing powder, silver cord, 1-1/4" circle punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, word window punch, round tag punch

First snow!

While I stamped the afternoon away today I missed the snow flurries we had here in Kingston. So far we haven't had much fall, just a little dusting and enough to say it snowed! I'm looking forward to seeing huge snowflakes fall, but not the icy road conditions!

The funky shapes of the designer series paper called to me to create a fun card layout. I'm trying to update my stash of masculine birthday cards, you know, the ones that can sometimes be so hard not to make frilly and girly? I know though that everyone enjoys receiving a handmade card.
Stamps: Party Hearty
Ink: Sage Shadow, Basic Grey
Paper: Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Urban Garden DSP
Accessories: stampin' dimensional, scallop edge punch, scallop circle punch, word window punch, sage shadow grosgrain ribbon, silver brads, sticky strip, 1-1/4" circle punch
