Birthday Wishes

Hiya! Sorry its been so long since I last posted! Things have been crazy in the letter shirt business world with many chapters of my sorority initiating new girls! Anyway, I have a few buddies who are celebrating their birthdays this month and this is one of the cards that I made. In fact, its the only card I have made in about 3 weeks! Ack! I am dying to take a break from sewing, but not much time until I meet some more shirt deadlines. Anywho ...
There has been a lot of heat embossing going on in the blog world and I have been itching to try it out. So much easier than I thought it would be. I added some embossed polka dots to the bottom half of the card using Versamark ink and some clear embossing powder. I stamped the "flowers" with a medallion from the Giga Guidelines set, cut them out and added some glitter using a 2-way glue pen. Love it! I stuck them up on foam tape around the stitched grosgrain bow. In general, I just love how quick and easy this was and how cute it turned out to be! A definite need-to-repeat in the future. How fun would it be to make a set in different color schemes? Maybe when I finish those shirts ...

Thanks for stopping by after such a long time between posts! Have a great week!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics II, Giga Guidelines

Ink: PTI Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz; Versamark
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, White
Other: PTI Raspberry Fizz stitched ribbon; clear embossing powder; 2-way glue pen; foam tape; glitter from Taylored Expressions

  2. Love it Chrissy. I hate to heat emboss totally not my fave thing to do however, after I purchased an embossing buddy I find that I have more luck with my images turning out the way they are supposed to;)
