The sixth card in my birthday series is probably my favorite! I love elegant and vintage style cards and this one really ranks up there on my list! I just absolutely loved the beautiful birthday stamp from the first moment I saw it in Stampin’ Up!’s annual catalog! I wanted to design a card that would really showcase the elegance of this stamp! I immediately thought of the elegant lines embossing folder because of its fancy, elegant design…plus there is room in between the design to stamp a sentiment!
I began by stamping the Beautiful Birthday sentiment in soft suede ink on a piece of pink pirouette cardstock. Next, I embossed the pink cardstock with the elegant lines embossing folder paying careful attention to how I positioned the embossing folder around my stamped image. Then I embellished the card with a variety of my favorite products: Tea for Two DSP, flower trim, paper doilies, victoria crochet trim, vintage faceted buttons and a bit of linen thread! What do you think about the design?
