Succulent Birthday


NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog.  It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar.  However, it found a home on the first day of March here.  The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here.

Hi everybody,

Cindy here to share another birthday card.  One could not have too have birthday cards, could you?  😉  This month’s challenge is Embossing.  I did both dry embossing and heat embossing on my card.   And I was inspired to use those colours from a card sent to me by a dear friend. You could see that card on my blog Escape To Stamping.



My process:

  • Ink embossing folder and spritz with Perfect Pearl solution.  Place water colour paper in embossing folder, close and pass thru die cut machine.  Let panel dry.
  • On white card stock and vellum, ink and heat emboss the various images.  Closing trim.
  • Adhere dry embossed panel on card base.
  • Adhere the rest of the element on embossed panel as shown.

Here’s a couple of close up:
