In the Background

It's time for the background to be the star of the show! Today, we are highlighting some of our favourite backgrounds. Just in case you are looking to add a few additional backgrounds to your collection, we are having a one day sale on our Rubber Backgrounds. You can find all the details on the sale HERE.

Before we get to the details of the card, I want to tell you about one of my favourite tools that I use every time I emboss, the Embossing Magic. I rub this all over my card stock before I stamp the image in Versamark. It helps to keep all of those little extra bits of embossing powder from settling on your card stock. It really is magic!

On to the card. I stamped a piece of Smooth White card stock with the Happy Birthday Background in Versamark. I embossed the background with Clear Embossing Powder. I used a few Blending Tools and four colours of pink Premium Dye Inks to create an ombre effect. The happy birthday was die-cut in Kraft card stock and given a thin coat of Crystal Effects.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings stamp set in Ripe Raspberry.
