Embossed Happy Birthday Card

Darkroom Door - Saturday, July 25, 2015
Hello there, Joy here today bringing you another card creation, this time using two lovely Background Stamps which happen to be from the latest collection, Clocks and Herringbone.

I chose to add only parts of the background stamps on my card, the background feature was the Herringbone, that I embossed on white card stock with white embossing powder, then adding some soft blending with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, splashing this surface with some water droplets.

Setting that aside to work on the rest of the card, I then took some vellum and stamped out the Clock background stamp with Versamark ink, also embossing this with white embossing powder, die cutting a circle feature and setting aside..

To add more colour to the card, I took out the Butterflies stamp set, stamped out a butterfly also with Versamark Ink and embossing with white embossing powder onto water colour paper, colouring the butterfly with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, cutting out with a pair of scissors..

Time to assemble the card, adding teeny tiny pieces of foam mounting tape to the vellum, making sure to add to the under side where the embossing lied as so it would not be seen from the front, the circle was mounted so that some of the vellum hung off the side of the card stock.

Stamping out a sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and trimming one end into a flag, adding this to the card along with the butterfly and finishing off the card with a scattering of sequins completed a cheerful birthday card.

Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Herringbone Background Stamp
Darkroom Door Clocks Background Stamp
Darkroom Door Butterflies Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Happy Birthday Rubber Stamp Set
Distress Ink: Pumice Stone

I hope that you enjoyed seeing this creation today and that it inspires you to use your background stamps in different ways.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, this is really stunning! I love the subtlety of the white embossing with just the hint of color.
