Just giddy...

I loved how this card turned out and so did my nephew.  I found this pad of paper called Stationers Desk by Prima and fell in love with it.  I started thumbing through the pad trying to figure out what I wanted to do for his birthday card, when I came across this piece.  It immediately started "talking" to me...hahaha!

I inked up a NBUS stamp from Penny Black called "Regalia" in VersaMark ink and embossed it with Liquid Platinum by Ranger.  Don't you just love this color?!?!?  I got so excited when I saw how the tree turned out...just giddy!!!  I decided to do a Jennifer McGuire trick and inked up a scrap piece of card stock with VersaMark and embossed it with the Liquid Platium and just a bit of Stampendous' "Aged Silver embossing enamel.  Then die cut "Happy" from Wplus9's "Happy Trio" die set.  The word "birthday" is from Wplus9's "Whole lota Happy" and the tag is a die cut from Simon Says Stamp "Bundle of Stitched Shapes".  I used gold thread to tie off the tag and sequins to finish off the card and mounted it to a piece of Stampin' Up's "Chocolate Chip" card stock.


  1. Absolutely LOVE this card Sue and I bet it looks even cooler in person!! So many neat techniques and colors used on, so cool!! :0)

  2. Platinum one of my go to embossing powder the whole effect and design.
