When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.
Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.
I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!
I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?
