Note: This is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see my post for the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Birthday Celebration.
I'm thrilled to participating in the World Card Making Day Blog Hop!
I still remember being in Congo last October and getting the email that
I was a winner of the 2012 World Card Making Contest.
I'm pretty sure I must have squealed out loud, because I remember having to explain
to my team (of four men!) that I'd won.
And that it was a pretty big deal. ;)
For the blog hop, today, we were challenged to create a card in the same category in which we won.
Mine was birthday.
So, here's my birthday card....
I stamped my feather stamps into Versamark and then into dye ink before stamping them
onto vellum and heat embossing them with clear embossing powder.
I cut them out by hand and adhered them onto my cardstock background,
which I'd stamped with the sentiment before running it through my diecutting machine
with my woodgrain impression plate.
This cardstock panel was adhered to a piece of Teresa Collins patterned paper
and a button and some twine finish it off.
So, the next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented Lorena Cantó Lavería.
And, if you'd like to start at the beginning, here's the full blog hop list:
