Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone! Can you believe it, two posts in one day! Well, it'll probably be after midnight when I actually publish this so it'll technically be tomorrow, so never mind about two posts in one day! ;) Here's a project I created for Lee's StampTV "Stampbossing" challenge. It's a fancy fold out card that I knew as a handkerchief fold way back in the day. Yep, another fun project from the Technique Junkie's 3D and Fun Folds Paper Crafts CD. Inspiration galore!

Okay, Lee's term "Stampbossing" means stamping and embossing together. That's not something I do often, so I enjoyed the challenge. I used stamps from the GKD Spring Blessings stamp set for the stamped and embossed portions, and sentiment stamps from the Birthday Greetings stamp set. The papers I used were from the GKD Wishing You Joy 6x6 paper pack.

This card features eyelet lace, buttons and an attached belly band that's tied with pretty wrinkled ribbon. And of course, I can't forget the main focus of the challenge theme... the stamped flowers that are embossed with a Swiss Dots embossing folder. ;)

Here it's unfolding.

And the center is revealed.

A beautiful stamped sentiment with a dragonfly and gorgeous flowers.

A close-up of one of the corners, unfolded - the stamped flowers embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and some randomly stamped dragonflies embellished with clear Wink of Stella.

And here's a view of the back - more Swiss Dots embossing and the back of the attached belly band. Oh, this was fun! ;)
