Brushstroke Birthday

October 1, 2017

This card was inspired by the current Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Heavy Metal. I had just received the SSS October Card Kit and the new Steel Navy embossing powder. It is such a cool embossing powder; it appears to be a dark metallic blue.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment on the lower part of the card base. I used the navy embossing powder for the sentiment. I added a heart with silver embossing powder. I added stripes to the rest of the card using the same embossing powders and three shades of aqua inks. It was a very simple card to create; however, I love the results.
