Happy Birthday Barb!
Hi everyone. Sharing a card I made to celebrate my friend Barb's (Barb's Studio Creations) birthday, which is today. I sent this off to her a couple of weeks ago, and thankfully it arrived before the big day. :) Hope you are having a wonderful birthday Barb!!
I used my NBUS Wild Hibiscus stamp set from Altenew. Just had to buy this set after seeing these beautiful cards made by my friend Hazel.
I started by heat embossing the flowers and leaves in liquid platinum embossing powder. Then I sloshed on some colour using my zigs and a damp paintbrush. I fussy-cut them and then popped them up over top of a dry embossed curved piece at the bottom. Love the texture and design from this embossing folder.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
