Clearly Besotted Enjoy Your Day

I had pulled out the Clearly Besotted Thanks a Bunch stamp set to use one of the sentiments on the inside of a thank you card. It was sitting on my desk and I decided to create a birthday card using it.

The image was stamped with Memento London Fog Ink onto a quarter sheet of Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. When the coloring was complete it was stamped again with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed gold.

Since this stamp doesn't have a coordinating die I decided to cut down the image using an Ellen Hutson Essential Oval Die. I love these dies because it cuts the shape, but also a thin frame. I used the die to cut the thin frame from gold mirror cardstock.

I decided to use a quarter panel of green cardstock for the card front. It was dry embossed to add some visual interest behind the focal image. Low loft foam tape was added to the back of the oval and it was laid on the green panel so that the gold frame could be glued in place. The backing on the foam tape was then removed and the oval was adhered in the middle of the frame.

I didn't have a lot of room for a sentiment so I pulled out one of my favorite dies, Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy and cut it three times from scraps of green cardstock and again from a scrap of gold mirror cardstock and adhered them all together with liquid glue. It was laid in place on the cardfront to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment. It was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed gold. The die cut sentiment was adhered in place with liquid glue as well.

A few gold confetti embellishments were scattered around the image and the card was done.
