I got these new stamps from HLS a while ago, but it's only since I tidied up my craft room that I found them again 😄 I started by cutting a couple of tags - one from design paper and one plain white card and glueing them together to give a little border on the tag. I stamped the succulents on the plain white card, coloured them with Copic markers, put them back in the MISTI, restamped with Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I used my Scan'n'Cut to cut out the images. I stamped the words 'it's your birthday' several times along a strip of kraft card, embossed it and cut it into a banner. I stamped the large word 'smile' at the top of the tag and embossed it with clear powder. I attached the tag to the card, added the banner and then adhered the succulents, using dimensional pads on a couple of the pots. I finished the front by adding some enamel dots. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of a coordinating sheet of design paper and on the white panel added a simple greeting and another succulent.
I'm taking this card back to the UK with me at the end of the week. It's Ben's dad's 60th birthday at the end of June and I'm sending this to him. I'll be making a special card for Ben to send to his dad too. I'm safe to share it on here as Kim won't see the card!!
That's all for now - see you again soon.
