Cards in Envy Snowbird Challenge

Happy New Year and Welcome to the new challenge at Cards in Envy.  We are looking for cards with snow, snowmen or snowflakes but be sure to add a bird to your card.  I almost feel like this is a cheat card because no stamping was involved.  I ran the card through a snowflake embossing folder and used this beautiful image and sentiment from the Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish" paper pack, added a few red stickles to sparkle it up and done!

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Challenge blog, Graphic 45 Time to Flourish.

Come check out what the rest of the design team came up with for their snowbird cards on the Cards in Envy blog.  Your cards can be any size or shape but not lumpy bumpy cards - they need to fit in a mailing envelope.  Here's a great Irish quote for the New Year.

"In the New Year may your right hand be stretched out in friendship but never in want."

Happy Crafting!


  1. That's not cheating, that's easy and I love easy! Your card is beautiful!
    Happy New Year Donna!

  2. No cheating here Donna. You made some thing gorgeous with a couple of supplies on hand. I've had some of those same Graphic 45 papers and also hoarded them for just the perfect occasion because I really wanted to be able to look at them myself on a regular basis. LOL Wishing you a great New Year.

  3. Nope, no cheating, a card still needs to be put together and the design needs to be planned for. I think it's lovely. Best wishes for the new year!

  4. Happy New Year, Donna! I just love what you did with that Graphic 45 image. For some reason, I struggled with this challenge, but not you. This card is so elegant. :)

  5. Hi Donna
    Happy New Year!
    Your card is stunning. The embossing looks wonderfully crisp.
    Love your Irish quote.
    Best wishes.
