Step-by-Step Instructions:

To help you recreate this beautiful card, I’ve included a video tutorial below. Follow along as I guide you through each step of the process.

  1. Stamp the Background: Start by stamping the Round We Go images all over the white cardstock using different colors. This will create a vibrant and playful background.
  2. Create the Focal Point: Stamp and die-cut images using the Round We Go set in two tones. Layer these images to create a dynamic and eye-catching focal point.
  3. Heat Emboss the Banner: Cut a strip of black cardstock and stamp your birthday sentiment with Versamark ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder over it and heat emboss to set.
  4. Assemble the Card: Adhere the layered focal point to the stamped background. Add the heat-embossed banner for contrast and dimension. Finally, mount everything onto a card base.
  5. Finishing Touches: Add any additional embellishments or details you like to complete your card.
