Happy Birthday

 Today I was going to make some cards for some of my DT obligations for 2023 but decided to make this one for the fun of it.  I die cut a circle for the flower head and diecut a couple of tiny leaves.  I coloured them by dabbing them into distress oxide inks and left to dry.  I then embossed with a crackle stamp using versamark and sticky embossing powder, heat then used gilding flakes randomly.

I drew the stem using brown pen. I round the circle and leaves using an embossing tool on a rubber mat.  I cut into the circle in the attempt to make it look like single petal - not so sure why as can't really distinguish the difference lol

I used double sided foam tape under the leaves and in the middle of the sentiment to lift the centre for a curved shape. This was to cover a crooked attempt of stamping directly on the card TWICE lol.

I die cut a circle on the front panel and used double sided foam tape to adhere it.

Thank you for visiting

  1. This is very pretty - love the clean lines as well. Thanks for sharing with us at HLS Birthday :)

  2. The embossed and gilded flower looks so beautiful. I did think that it was a clay flower at first glance. I love the simple CAS background which makes it the focal point. Gorgeous!
