CAS Birthday Card 3 (Marbling)

Hi friends!

I have really been enjoying myself over the weekend making CAS cards and so I'd like to share another CAS birthday card I made. This card incorporates nail polish marbling (thanks to Rahmat for sharing the video tutorial) and I really love the pattern it created with the red, blue and gold, in some of the pictures the shine from the gold is visible :) 

Synopsis of the process:

This is a top folding landscape style A2 size card. I stamped thrice with geometrical images using the Uniko Background Builders Squared stamp set. Earlier on I had done some nail polish marbling with red, blue and gold colored nail polishes on a blue colored cardstock, so now I die cut it with a Gina Marie Stitched circle die. I colored the outer perimeter of the die cut with a black sharpie to make it stand out against the background. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on the die cut using the Winnie & Walter- A tree for all seasons stamp set. The die cut was pasted on the card front. Some of the squares from  the background were colored with light blue, dark blue and red. Dots and dashes were hand drawn for added interest using a uniball signo white gel pen. In the end, 3 enamel dots were added.

Supplies Used:

1. Iris cardstock 250 gsm
2. Uniko stamps- Background Builders Squared

3. Winnie & Walter Stamps- A tree for all seasons
4. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens- pack of 12
5. Uniball Signo white gel pen
6. Black sharpie marker
7. Enamel dots
8. Ranger's archival ink- jet black
9. Gina Marie stitched circles die set
10. Tom Bow Multi Aqua Glue
11. Ranger's heat tool
12. Homemade emboss buddy
13. Zing Opaque white embossing powder

Here are a few of pictures of the finished card:
