Happy birthday flowers embossed resist technique square card - Day 171 of my 365 day challenge

Happy birthday flowers and embossed resist technique square card 
Day 171 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card for my 365 day challenge is using the embossed/resist technique which I am coming to really like doing.


How I made this card:-

  • As you can see from the pic, this is a linen effect card and so I used the Floral Favourites flower part of the Mask to edge this square card - I had to move it around every so often as I didn't want to use the straight part of the mask. I coloured it in using Parrot Altenew Ink as it is lovely and bright.
  • I then embossed the flowers and leaves from the Floral Favourites stamps set using Versamagic ink on to some white stamping card and heat embossed them with Seafoam White embossing powder.
  • I then coloured the whole panel with a mix of purple, greens,and blues Tim Holtz Distress inks. I tried to blend them as much as possible so each colour change was seamless.
  • I then used a piece of kitchen roll to remove any excess ink there may have been on the embossed parts to make them stand out.
  • I edged it using a blue alcohol marker and attached it to a slightly larger panel of white card, edged that too and placed it in the centre of the front of the card.
  • Finally, I used a sentiment (I think from Hunkydory) which reads "Wishing You a very happy birthday", added it to some black card which I trimmed round it and placed it at the bottom of the card using foam pads. (I decided right at the end to make this a tent fold card so that it was at the bottom rather than at the side).

And there you are an easy card to make by just using Hunkydory's For the Love of Stamps and Masks, Embossing powder and Distress inks.
