Birthday Gifts

Last week was my Mom's birthday and I took her to dinner and gave her this small gift I had made her. She loves snowman so I got a wooden letter for her name and added crackle paint all over it, stamped white snowflakes and embossed them and then added the Chin Up snowman from FCD. I colored him with Copic Markers but I forget which ones as I made him quite some time ago. At the top corner I added a snowflake brad and a bit of ribbon to finish it off. He has a hook thing on the back and she told me she was going to hang it on her cubicle at the entrance under her name plate LOL!

The card was made using shaving cream papers I had made a long while back and had in my scraps bucket. I ran the background piece through the cuttlebug and then swiped black ink across it to keep with the black and pink theme I had going. I added layers and finished it off with a flower from FCD and colored the flower in again with Copic Markers.

I enjoyed spending some time with my Mom!
