Free Spirit Birthday!

I made this card just because I was in the mood to make a card! That happens every now and again! lol! I am pleased with the way it turned out. Now need to find someone to send it to!

TECHNIQUE TALK...
~It's hard to tell by the photo, but the black line detail on the flower is stamped on a transparency. To do this, you will need Archival ink, an inkjet transparency and stamp of choice. Lay transparency down so the printable side is up. It is the side opposite the side that is glossy smooth. Ink your stamp with your archival ink and very carefully stamp it on to the transparency. You must be careful to stamp straight down because the stamp will slide around if you are not. This will result in a blurred image. Lift stamp straight up and set aside to dry for a few minutes. Cut out image as desired. In this case I cut close around the image. This technique also works great for card windows or clear acrylic cards.

I used Free Spirit Level 2 Paper Pack, Rustic Flowers stamp set, From Me to You Stamp Set, Legendary Moments stamp set, Solos 'h' stamp set, Clear Transparency, Autumn Terracotta Ribbon Rounds, Indian Corn Blue Ink, Honey Ink, Autumn Terracotta Ink, and Black Ink Pad & Marker. Dry embossing is done with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder.
