Operation Write Home Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for January. The challenge is to make a card using dry embossing.
I used this very old stencil by Sizzix to make the sentiment. After embossing with the stencil and my Big Shot, I colored the sentiment by patting a Brilliance Rocket Red ink pad over the Happy Birthday. I cut it out with a square Nestibility and cut the frame with a scalloped square Nestie.
Next, I embossed the patterned paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and adhered it to the red frame. The balloons were punched with a paper punch and popped on foam pop dots with twine added for the string. I tied the twine in a knot and glued it to the card with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. The entire card was placed on a white base card.
