Happy Birthday to my Leo friend

Hello folks!  One of my friends, here in town, celebrated her birthday two weeks ago, and this is what I made her.  The following highlights  the details I put into the making of this card.

Card Details

  • Gelli plate background using acrylic paint, stencils, Gelli Plate and brayer
  • Stamped out some images onto my background and heat embossed with a rust coloured embossing powder
  • Using my sewing machine, I stitched around the card’s edges
  • All of my cardstock began out white on this lion.  To colour the paper, I smooshed Distress Oxide onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and smooshed the paper into the damp Distressed Oxide.
  • I only have three browns and was able to make all the shades I needed.  Some areas of cardstock were darker in areas and lighter in areas, and I placed the appropriate die on the area of colour I wanted to use
  • Using a Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday die, I cut out the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh wow is that ever cool, you did a fabulous job with making the papers that make up the Lion, he is fantastic! Your background is pretty cool with him too, like the extra stamping you did on it, along with the stitching, bet she love it!
