Birthday Cards in Bulk

I love how these cards turned out, I had thought they would have gone over well with the client  but sometimes things happen and visions do not align and that's ok.  

So I decided to finish the card off anyway and keep them in my stash for future use. You can never have to many birthday cards.  :)  

I created these cards two ways, one with the emboss resist technique and the other just simply using gorgeous ink colors.  (And to be honest  I haven't used my inks in so long especially since the distress oxides came out) 

I used the flora stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and my misti to get a good impression. I stamped half of the cards in versa mark and then heat embossed using detailed white embossing powder from ranger.  I then took out those lushes distress oxide and went to town on the embossed card panels.  I used twisted citron, lucky clover, wild honey fossilized amber, wilted violet and seedless preserve. 

The other half of the cards  I stamped the panels  using apricot and and scuba ink from Simon Says Stamp, really love these colors. 

For the sentiment  I used the You die cut and matching You sentiment stamp from My Favorite things. I die cut the You in all three forms multiple times and then stacked them. I love the dimension it adds but not always fun gluing them individually like that.

In the process of lining the letters up /

 I found that trying to line up the you that is not one sold piece was becoming a pain so i decided to cut a piece of acetate and die cut the same you out of it so i could use the negative to help me line up the letters but also see where i was putting it 

 

These are the finished  cards that in end were the winner, they are the same technique as the cards above which i described. The only change that was made was in the was I created the sentiment. I ended up using the My Favorite things Lable die and for the sentiment it self I used the Avery Elle Merriest stamp set.
