A whole mass of Birthday Cards
I thought this time I'd try something different- I I fancied running the card front through the Cuttlebug, in various embossing folders. So, 10 assorted card fronts here. I went with mainly geometric designs, as that seemed to fit the medallions better.
The medallions were added with silicone glue- gives a bit of dimension, sticks to the glittery back of the image, and evens out into the embossed design of the card.
As I'd embossed the base card, I had to stamp & matt the Happy Birthday sentiments for these.
Then I started wondering if they were a little TOO plain? So I added ribbon to the left side.
Now I'm not sure at all. I think maybe it suits some, but not all. So I will leave it a few days and look at them fresh. It seems like some look unbalanced now- but its a simple fix if I really don't like them.
These were the original batch, with the sentiment stamped, and some ribbon.
This is before I added the ribbon.
List of Embossing folders I used:
Quickutz Diamond Dots, Lines & Dots, and Diamond.
Darice Honeycomb,Brick Wall,and Plaid.
Creative Expressions Lattice.
DoCrafts Tri Boss Checkerboard.
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots.
