Birthday Card

Hello everyone! I am sharing a card with you that follows the latest sketch from JustRite Stampers. For my design I wanted to have some embossing and to have a break from pink, just to shake things up a little bit!

To create my background, I embossed some cardstock. Using a brayer I inked it up with white ink to highlight the raised designs. I used two different stamp sets to create my centre focal point. I used some foam tape to add dimension to my layers.

To create my border, I used a border stamp and inked it with Versa Mark then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I played around with some Martha Stewart punches and ended up using my flower bed punch. I punched along the edge of one side as usual. Once finished I measured how deep the punch was which is 3cm. Then on the other side I measured 3cm from the edge and cut it before I punched again. This created a lovely border which I attached to my stamped border.

I stamped a sentiment onto some cardstock and heat embossed it then used a die to cut it out. A bow, some ribbon and flowers complete my card. I then decided to add a butterfly to the centre of my card using some left over cardstock...nothing goes to waste!
