Post 127: CAS Birthday Card

Hi friends !!

I'm so glad you've taken the time to visit me here. I truly appreciate it :) Today I'd like to share a clean and simple birthday card.

This is a top folding A2 size card. I wanted the focal image to be of a sparkly and shiny birthday cake. 

Synopsis of the Process:

On snippets of black cardstock, the cake, decorations on the cake, the candle and the sentiment were stamped (from the Hero Arts Birthday set) with versamark ink and then heat embossed in gold. Then the images were die cut with coordinating dies. A banner was created out of a snippet of purple cardstock which was layered under the black sentiment banner to accent it. Some ink blending was done in the center of the cardbase and then the die cut stamped images were adhered with tombow glue. To finish off the card, 3 gold sequins were added. 

List of Supplies:

1. Hero Arts Stamp and Die- Birthday 
2. Ranger's gold embossing powder (fine detail)
3. Ranger's heat tool
4. Homemade emboss buddy
5. Tim holtz mini distress inkpad- peacock feathers
6. Golden sequins
7.Iris white cardstock 250 gsm, snippets of black and purple cardstock
8. A pair of scissors
9. Sizzix Big Shot Plus for die cutting
10. Ranger's round blending tool and foam
11. Tombow mono multi glue 
12. Versamark watermark mini inkpad

Here are a few pictures of the card:
