Happy Birthday

A similar version of this card was for my brother’s birthday! I wanted something masculine, but not dull and monochrome but bright and cheerful. So this card was born!

The glossy accents I’ve used on the circle punch outs really lift the colour in them – they almost look like shiny brads! Speaking of which, in my next video, I’ll show you how to make patterned brads to match any project, such fun =)

I love this embossing pen as it has two tips, one thick, one thin. Perfect for frame borders and embossed writing! And it stayed wet long enough to hold the embossing powder for a perfect finish. Love it!

For sale: It’s also available to buy in My Folksy shop at this link. Your support is gratefully appreciated =)
