Designer's Tip:



  1. Card front: Place the card fold at the side. Cover the card with brown striped paper.
  2. Technique: Embossed frame: Place the corner stencil with the heart at the top and the rounded metal point flush with the card top. Sponge VersamarkWatermark over the stencil image. Remove and position the stencil at the bottom. Sponge and remove. Sprinkle with dark brown embossing powder. Tap off excess powder and return to the jar. Heat with heat gun.
  3. Embellish the front: Punch a brown scalloped circle and glue to the center of the embossed frame. Apply Ocean ink to the top portion of the birthday greeting and Maroon to the bottom portion. Stamp the greeting on a 3" white circle. Foam tape the circle to the brown scallop circle and blue a pink bow at the bottom.
  4. Inside: Cover the inside back with green circle paper. Place the corner stencil at the top. Sponge with Versamark and emboss. Stamp "Happy Belated Birthday" alternating Ocean and Maroon inkpads.
