I saw a card very similar to this on Theresa Momber's blog, craftingtheweb.blogspotcom, and had to try it. Using her stamp set, Vogue Vases, from Gina K Designs, I stamped the corner of the cardstock with VersaMark ink, then heat embossed it in white. Using Tim Holtz Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar Distressed Inks, I sponged from the corner down. The floral design showed through. I added the border and sentiment across the bottom.
Stamping those things was not easy, because they were rubber stamps. Getting Happy Birthday to sit close enough to the line and stamping it straight took some practice. In fact, I had to cover my first try, practice some, then add the best one on top of the crooked one! Thus, the strip of white cardstock and the addition of ribbon. I think it still looks ok, but I wish they were clear stamps -- sure would be easier!
I am entering this card in Word Art Wednesday's Challenge #136.
Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your visits and comments very much. Hope to see you again soon!
