A Winter Birthday

Happy Christmas Eve Dies R Us Friends!
WOW can you believe it's Christmas Eve already!?!
Where has the year gone?

Darlene with you today sharing a card using dies from the Dies R Us Store to create a winter Birthday card.  I always feel badly for people who have birthday's around Christmas.  I often wonder if they really get that special attention they deserve.  Well I know someone celebrating a Christmas Birthday so I created this fun card in hopes of sending her an EXTRA smile!

How cute is this little guy!  
 Elizabeth Craft  #1041 - Rudy the Reindeer
Unfortunately he's not available in the store at the moment but there are several other Elizabeth Craft 'critters' that are similar and would work beautifully on a design such as this.  For instance, how about 'Buster the Dog'
*NEW - Elizabeth Craft Designs - Buster the Dog

*NEW - Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Brownie The Cow

Other dies I've used are . . .

Yvonne Creations - Holly Jolly - Nesting Frame

Amy Design - Dies - Wintertide - Ice Crystal Swirl

Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Happy Birthday

Penny Black 'In the Winter' #51-173

What a fun time I had creating this card and I hope it has brought a smile to your face today!  Now I'd better make sure Santa is all set for his busy night!

  1. A super 'Christmassy' birthday card Darlene! You've used a gorgeous selection of dies, and I just love the reindeer. Buster and the cow look equally cheeky too!
    Merry Christmas to you.

  2. Oh don't you worry about people with Christmas birthdays we make out just fine lol But if this showed up in my mailbox I wouldn't mind! Love the dies and the design, that reindeer is so adorable! That nesting frame is fabulous especially with that white 'greenery' tossed in! Love Janice's reference to 'cheeky' Merry Merry my dear!!!

  3. Oh my goodness he is too cute, love that expression and I also love your touch of blue in there too, they will Love this!!

  4. What a gorgeous set of dies that work perfectly together. The blue is so pretty against the white, the trees inside the delicately framed circle are a great idea, and that reindeer is too cute. Wonderful, wintry birthday card.
