A birthday card

Good afternoon ladies - I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend, if it is one where you live.

Today I have a birthday card I made recently using a technique I haven't use in a long time;

The background is a stamp from Carolines Stamps & is one of her early texture mats (of which I have quite a few).  I particularly like this one because there are several places on the image that this technique can be done.  I stamped the image in black archival ink & heat embossed with clear EP. Next I stamped it again but only inking the large flower which I cut out & coloured.  The flower was then placed in its original position over the black & white area & run through an embossing folder. This does 2 things it embosses the whole design but also embeds the cut out into the main image. I then coloured some white ribbon with the same pen as the flower & wrapped it around the image. The bow was made with a Tattered Lace bowmaker. I cut another piece of card just slightly larger than the image & coloured the edges with the same pen then layered the 2 together.  It was then added to the white base card, along with a sentiment & some gems to complete it.

Thank you for popping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
