An Emboss/Resist Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Nora here with an embossed/resist card. 

As the New Year has started, I decided to step away from my clean and simple look and create a card with bright colors for some birthdays I have this month. I used some older products for this card. 

Stamps: Shenanigans

Step 1
Using the Shenanigans stamp set and clear ink, I stamped the "make a wish" sentiment four times and the "then blow out the bonfire! sentiment once onto watercolor paper.  I then heat embossed the sentiments in white.

Step 2
Next I smooshed ink in three colors on a craft mat, misted water over the top and dipped the embossed cardstock into the ink. I tried to use colors associated with fire because of the reference to bonfire. I had to smoosh the ink in stages to get the look I wanted. I used a heat gun to dry between each layer of ink. When the panel was dry, I adhered it over an orange A2 sized card base.

Step 3
I die cut some stars out of yellow using the Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies. I adhered these stars over the top of the fourth "make a wish" sentiment and covered them with a gold sparkle pen and Glossy Accents.

Step 4
My last step was to adhere Washi tape in matching colors in random places. I also added a bit of blue for contrast and the card was complete.

I had a hard time photographing this card due to the bright colors but I am planning on sending it to my brother this week for this birthday. 

There are a lot of stamp sets and dies on sale. Don't forget to use my code to get an extra 15% off your total order.
