Clean and Simple Panel Birthday Card

This sample didn't make it to air, but I'd still like to share it.  A clean and simple panel card using inking and heat embossing.
Mask off a 3.5cm section down the right hand side of a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card. Leave a 5cm gap and mask off the left hand side of the card using a second blank mask.
Lay the small stencil over the gap, hold it in place and blend Rosy Cheeks Artistry ink over it using a foam tool. Move the stencil piece down the panel and add Cotton Candy ink over it in the same way. Move the small stencil for a third time and blend both Rosy Cheeks and Cotton Candy ink over it until the entire panel is complete. Remove the masking.

Stamp the small Allium head in Versamark ink over the centre of each stencilled image and heat emboss in gold. Add the head of larger full Allium twice in same way.
Add a couple more of the smaller Allium heads.
Stamp and heat emboss ‘Just to Say’, ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘Darling’ from the Art Nouveau sentiments set. Add to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.

A lovely card that could be done in any colour way & with any sentiment. A real go to set of stamps & stencil & when you add in the die the choices are going to be endless. Thanks for sharing this & giving us some inspiration as to what is possible. Can't wait for my goodies to arrive but it more than likely won't be until this time next week.

Very effective Sarah - I too love the aliums and was sure I had the stamps but can't find them. Ah well ... another order to clarity xx
