Embossed birthday

I made this card for the 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.

  1. Oh Velda,
    I really like how you did this whole card. The elements all go together so well. I have totally forgotten about my brass stencils, I will just need to get them out.
    Thank you for joining the challenge this month.
