Welcome to Amy’s Inkin Krew Birthday Blog Hop! If you’re coming from Mary’s blog – Welcome!
This month we bring you birthday cards! Of all the cards I send/make, by far birthday cards win! I make a lot of birthday cards, but I also LOVE to send them!
For today’s card share, I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock. I then cut out a circle with copy paper and put it in the middle of the card. I stamped Versamark using the Falling Flowers Stamp Set in a variety of flowers all around the circle. I removed the paper circle and spread white heat emboss powder over the flowers and heated them to emboss them.
For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Better Together Stamp Set in Basic Black and cut it out with the Layering Circles. I then used the Layering Circles to cut to out another thin circle of Bermuda Bay to go around the Whisper White. I stamped some extra stamps and leaves in Bermuda Bay and cut them out with the framelits in the Falling Flowers Bundle.
Now the great thing about embellishments is that they can be used to cover up mistakes. I originally planned for no ribbon. However, I must not have stamped one of the flowers well enough in Versamark because it didn’t heat emboss completely. No problem – I just added the white ribbon to cover over it. Because the white ribbon was a little more formal than I liked – I added a Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine bow over it.
