Birthday Cards!!!

It may have been pointed out to me recently that I make a lot (A LOT) of friendship and thank you cards and not enough birthday cards!!!!(thanks so much Terri!!!:)). And I totally agree!!! So I am going to try to rectify that over the next couple of weeks and really stock up on all the 'other' kinds of cards we all need to have on hand.

So, here is a birthday card I made recently...almost a total CASE from the wonderful Amy Waters with just a few little tweaks of my own? I LOVE this fabulous design/idea - the fresh, bright Melon Mambo against the Kraft cardstock - I love this colour combo A LOT! :) I have been wanting to try this card for a VERY long time, but had to wait till I could purchase the embossing heat tool and powders. So so fun to make and not too tricky - you should give it go!!!

The flower has been inked up in Versa Mark, then sprinkled with White Embossing Powder, heated up with the Heat Tool and once its been cooled I've rubbed White Craft Ink in circular patterns to create the dimension in the middle.
So if there is anything you would like to see a little more of, just shoot me an email or a comment and I'll try to oblige!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Come again soon,
