How I made my card:
  • I created an A2 card from natural card stock.  I used a Deckle Rectangle stencil to brush on some pink distress ink and create an area.  I lightly stamped the Script CAC stamp before removing the stencil.
  • Next, I took the inside portion of the stencil, and placed it over the area I had created.  I used embossing ink with foam applicator to create a border of embossing ink all around the area, then embossed with fine gold embossing powder for a border.
  • I gold-embossed the Happy Birthday verse, and used a graphite pencil to add some shading to the letters.
  • I gold-embossed the Budding Blossom onto a scrap piece of the natural card stock.  I colored this with Arteza Everblend alcohol markers.
  • I fussy-cut the blossom, and added it to the card front, with some gold pearl accents.
  • INSIDE:  I created another distress area as above, and stamped the Beautiful You verse with green ink.  I gold-embossed the Budding Bloom, and added that.
I hope you are enjoying our cards for the April Release.  There are so many fun stamps to work with.  Let me know in the comments which is YOUR favorite!
