Birthday Wishes

For this card, I wanted to try another new color combo: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, and Barely Banana. It was a fun card to make, as I LOVE embossing! The card measures 6-1/2" x 3-1/4" (perfect for the small open end envelopes).

  • First, I cut my Old Olive card stock to 6-1/2 x 6-1/2, scoring at 3-1/4
  • Using a corner rounder, I rounded the two bottom corners
  • Stamping in Versamark ink, I randomly stamped the circle image from Circle Circus on the right-hand side of the card and lightly sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over each image
*TIP* Versamark stays wet for a long time, so it's okay to stamp all your images, then cover them all with embossing powder at one time
  • I heat set the circle images with my heat tool
  • I then used the gift image from Holiday Blitz and stamped it twice (once in Pumpkin Pie, once in Old Olive) on the Barely Banana card stock
  • Dimensionals make the gifts "pop" up from the card front
  • Pumpkin Pie & Soft Suede make a nice double mat for the gifts
  • The "birthday wishes" stamp is from the Wow Flower stamp set and is also stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder
  • A piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon on top of a strip of Barely Banana finishes off this fun card
