Video: Zodiac Birthday Background

by Michelle Short August 21, 2017 9 Comments

Hello there, Michelle here and today I have a card to share using the Zodiac Birthday stamp set which was released as an add-on for the August My Monthly Hero kit. I started off by taking a piece of paper from the Pool Mix Layering Papers collection and die cut this using the 5th largest die from the Rectangle Infinity Dies set. I then took all of the star signs from the Zodiac Birthday set and stamped these on to it using Versamark Ink.

I used all of the signs as I am not making this card for any one in mind but if you knew in advance, you could repeatedly stamp their star sign for the background. I applied Sparkle Embossing Powder and then heat set it. I then took the Aegean Bold Ink and with an ink blending tool, blended the ink over the piece, making it darker towards the edges. The panel was added to a white A2 card base with foam sheet.

On to a piece of black cardstock, I stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment using Versamark Ink and applied White Embossing Powder. This was heat set and then the piece was cut in to a thin strip. I added this to a vellum heart that was cut with the 4th smallest of the Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies. This piece was then added to the card. To finish off, I added a sequin from the Champagne Ombre Mix along with two from the Frosty Ombre mix (both will be available in the shop on the 23rd August).

You can see how I made the card in the video here:
