A pretty birthday card today. The stamp set is Baby Blossoms from the summer mini, a two step stamp set and it is so pretty. I used marker pens from the subtles series to ink up the stamps, a light colour for the base layer of each flower and then a toning darker colour for the detail. Once all the flowers and leaves were in place I used the textured embossing folder in the big shot. This folder is great, it makes your paper look and feel like a piece of fabric. I matted onto Baja breeze and then onto the card base of rose red. I also used rose red ink for the greeting (sincere salutations stamp set) and the frame which I then 3d mounted over the top of an organza ribbon sash.
