Quick Birthday cards
The first image is called Artful Mosaic, and I love it because you can stamp it then colour it, stamp it onto an inked background, or as I have, stamp & heat emboss and it always looks great.
Guess you can see why its called a classic!
Anyway, stamped in black onto White pearl card, then heat embossed with clear powder.
Decided I would 'frame ' the image with an embossed line on the front. To do this I opened out the card, and on the inside I drew lightly in pencil around the corners of the image. Then I drew a box all around where the image would be, about a 1/4" out from the original size.
Lined this up on my Hougie board, and embossed the four sides,being very careful at the corners.
I didn't put it exactly central, as I wanted room at the bottom for the sentiment.
DST on the back of the image, and mounted it into the 'frame'.
The Birthday sentiment is a clear stamp from one of Debbie Moores stamp sets.
The second card I made was pretty much identical, except this time used a stamp called Moon Collage.
I also used a black base card this time. All the techniques were the same though.
