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.
