Minty Birthday Wishes

Hi Chris here and today I am excited to share this sweet Birthday card I created for one of the many upcoming family birthdays.  I just love the color combination of the mint, pinks and gold!

 List of Supplies: : 
White Embossing Powder
Watercolor gelatos- in gold, pink and mint green.
Pearl Floral Sprig
Paper Roses
Heat embossing tool
Damp cloth or baby wipes
Scissors and adhesive

1. Stamp the Diamond background stamp onto white cardstock with Versamark ink. Sprinkle the design with the embossing powder. Shake off excess powder into its container. Use the heat gun to melt the powder until it is glossy and smooth.

2. Scribble the gelatos onto the background.

3. Blend the gelatos with a damp cloth or baby wipe. Don't you love how the diamonds pop after this step?

4. Repeat the embossing technique for the butterfly and sentiment, both from the  Dandelion Wishes set.
5. Color them and blend with the gelatos. 

6. Hand cut the butterfly and banner shape. 
7. Assemble the card by adhering the stamped diamond background to the front of your card.
8. Then add the banner as shown.

9. Finish off the card with a 2 loop bow, the floral sprig, paper rose and the stamped butterfly.
