Embossed Birthday Card

I liked the last embossed card so much, I decided to do another one.  This time I made it a birthday card for my stash.  I began by embossing the white card stock with the same folder I used last time (see previous post). Next, I rubbed the design with pink and silver Inka-Gold metallic paste (from HM BFC).  After stamping the words on vellum, I applied silver embossing powder and heat embossed it. By carefully fussy cutting the words, the vellum piece was glued (with 3 in 1 Beacon glue) onto the embossed card stock. The embossed piece was then attached to the pink card before the tiny heart was glued on.  I cut off the metal arms from an old heart brad.  I tried many embellishments, but in the end I decided to keep it simple so that the embossing would stand out.  I like that I have another birthday card to add to my stash. Every new year brings more birthdays so it's always good to be prepared with a bunch of pretty cards to mail out. Be Happy! Keep creating!
