Beautiful Birthday Wishes
By Susan Cobb
Designer Tip: I love how beautiful these Distress Inks look with the Chocolate Color Me Card Toppers! The bright colors play well against the chocolate brown designs. Simply use a stylus and blender tips to add a punch of color.
- Card Front: Place your card with the fold on top. Lightly mist the rose border card topper above the roses with Butternut squash Glimmer Mist and let dry. Trim out the "Beautiful Birthday Wishes" label. Lightly mist with Glimmer Mist and let dry.
- Use the stylus and blender tip to color the rose blossoms with Picked Raspberry ink, blending the color from light to dark (light to heavy application) as desired. For tighter areas, use the pointed end of the blender tip with a light touch. With a clean blender tip, apply Mowed Lawn ink to the leaves. With a light touch, apply a small amount of Mowed Lawn ink to the thin frame border of the card topper.
- Apply a small amount of Picked Raspberry ink the outer edges of the label. Use the paper towel to wipe off the excess ink from the card topper and label. Foam tape the label centered above the roses. Zot a dark pink crepe bow near the label as shown. Glue the card topper even with the fold on the card front. Trim the edge of the card even with the scalloped edge of the card topper, through both card layers.
- Card Inside: Cut out "You're the Best" tag and lightly mist with Glimmer Mist. Let dry. Lightly apply Mowed Lawn to the frame border. Cut out a rose with leaves from a tag sheet and color with Distress Inks as you did for the front. Wipe off excess ink. Glue the tag centered on the inside. Glue the rose overlapping the lower left corner of the tag. Zot a pink bow to the top of the tag as shown.
