Embossed Resist Secret Garden Birthday Card

Today I had to work wish some retired papers.  I don't have any current decorative papers yet.  Feeling sorry for me now?  LOL  I just made do with what I had.  I used a scrap piece of decorative paper from the Poetry Print pack.  I never did use that up before it retired!  But I can still use it on many other cards until I get some new stuff!

Today's card is a fun technique card.  The technique is called Embossed Resist.  

I stamped the En Franceais set for the background.  I stamped it using Soft Suede.  Then I stamped the leaf from the "Secret Garden" set using VersaMark.  I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged on some Cherry Cobbler ink.  When you do this you must remember to wipe off the embossed area with a paper towel. The ink beads up on it and if you don't wipe it off it will get all over your fingers and make a HUGE mess!  

I used several punches on this card too.  I punched out the sponged image and then a little bit larger Very Vanilla circle and then the scallop.  

This is one of Terri's layouts.  I thought it would be fun to play with it.  I had other plans for the embossed piece but I didn't like how it turned out so I ended up using the circle punch on it and then worked with it!  

To do the words (which came from the "Petite Pairs" set) I stamped them on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and then I taped that piece to the front of this card.  I used just a little bit of tape and it was on the backside of where the words were.  I taped it in place so I could punch through the two pieces at the same time.  That way when I put it together the words will fit perfectly into the circle.  Once punched I taped the words down but did it through the front of the card so I would get it exact.  And it worked!!!

This is a fun layout to play with. It's quick and easy too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
