Well, blink again, and here's the beautiful month of May. You can't beat Autumn here in Oz.
TIP: Imperfect stamping (when embossing) is often simply a lack of ink, or stamp is moved too quickly, especially when using a clear ink. Stamp very firmly on cardstock and **press it firmly onto paper for few moments before lifting.
Next I made up card size I wanted to use, then die cut out the frame close to folded side of card. Used the largest Die from the SB Classic Long Rectangles Small set (ask Bec if she can get it as showing large set online in other sites.)
With the Memory Box Chloe Stem Die, cut one flower stem out of scrap card.
Adhered both stems, at suitable angles underneath base of frame, so they're hidden. Then layered the frame with finely trimmed mounted tape onto open aperture on card. Added pop dots and/or silicone glue under flowers to raise them off the Emboss Resist panel.
With scrap from the brusho panel, cut with a favourite " Happy Birthday " Die by Elizabeth Crafts.
Reasons for this being an excellent die: *it is beautifully written, cuts well and is such suitable size. Die cut two white ones two with double-sided tape. Added the layers.
TIP: Leave bottom layer of words in Die cut cardstock to add top layer of words. Much easier this way, as it is still in shape and grounded.
Two beautiful cards for birthdays in our family, one for 5th May, and one for 6th, I do hope everyone else loves them too.
