Prima Christmas in the Country Winter Birthday Wishes Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends! Do you ever use your Christmas papers for Winter Birthday Wishes?   Sometimes we forget that December is a birthday month for lots of folks.  We actually had 4 family birthdays this month!  This vintage style card made with Prima’s Christmas in the Country collection is a perfect choice for a winter birthday greeting.

The buffalo check, and frosted roses make me feel like I’m out for a brisk sleigh ride in the sparkling snow.  How about you?  Texture and pattern play an important role in this card design.

  • Houndstooth plaid lends a counterpoint to the large check in the background.
  • Antique Silver embossing on the frame amps up the vintage vibe.
  • Silver linen paper has a soft weave that adds a subtle sparkle that is echoed by the silver metallic grosgrain ribbon.
  • Silky printed satin ribbon adds a touch of whimsy to the card arrangement.
  • The glittering rhinestone button adds just the right touch of elegance.

If you’ve never dry brushed your flowers with chalk paint, I highly recommend it.  These red summer roses look as though they’ve been touched by frost.

Try tucking some metal charms into your flower cluster.  It’s a fun surprise!  And winter butterflies create a sense of movement as they flit around the framed image.

A Peek Inside

Finish the inside with a pair of pockets and some thoughtful tuck in’s.  Gift cards are always a welcome birthday treat!

I hope you all enjoyed the most wonderful, peaceful and joyful Christmas!  It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of this very tough year.  Let’s hope there are good things waiting in the wings!

Thanks for stopping by!

    What a lovely way to start the day, taking a peek at your new design! This card is so warm and cozy and I love it when you use plaids. I am not sure why, but I do struggle with using them and your designs make it look so effortless & seamless when you combine patterns. Yes Kath, I agree whole heartedly – Let’s have a New Year filled with wonderful things for the whole world to enjoy. Ready to say farewell to 2020 and on to 2021!

    Kathy I have always loved your cards that have a rustic yet soft feel to them. The image on the front is so lovely and somehow reminded me of that TV show “Little House on the Prairie”. You’ve added such pretty accents with the roses and charms and the inside, as always, is fabulous as well! This would make such a very special Winter birthday card. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!


    Beautiful card, Kathy!! As always, the embellishments are the icing on the cake – love it and have a Happy New Year!!! Thanks for all the wonderful projects shared this year!!

    Beautiful card Kathy! Never thought of it, but there are papers that can be used either during Dec. or anytime. I’ll have to take look see about some papers I have. I know I have the plaids and they can be used anytime of the year. Be safe & TYFS

      Those frosted roses look beautiful on this card! Love the colors on the inside. I so enjoy creating winter cards…makes this cold, rather dreary season into a celebration! I have a couple of January birthdays coming up…I’ll remember those frosted roses…very eye catching idea! Just a few more days left in this difficult year…sure hope 2021 is a more positive existence for all of us!
