Happy Birthday Triangles

Hello!

I was up on the Neat & Tangled blog earlier this and wanted to share my card here on my blog:

The ivory panel is Strathmore Watercolor paper that I heat embossed the Neat & Tangled Diamonds with Zing White embossing powder.  I loaded up the panel with water and tapped the end of the sprayer from mister huey’s garden & sherbet onto the paper.  I moved it around with the help of a watercolor brush until I liked the look and color intensity.

Chatting about embossing, I finally moved over some of my more heavily used powders into disposable containers:












































This makes it super easy to load up the image with the powder by using a plastic spoon and quickly dumping the powder into the container.  No more doing it over a piece of paper and emptying it into the original container…spilling but mostly having other stuff like glitter etc contaminating the powders.

The sentiment, from Sketchy Cupcake, was heat embossed in gold onto a vellum belly band:









































I’m labeling this a unisex Birthday Card.  Read more about it on the Neat & Tangled Blog as I chat about what I do at work.

I added a couple of the delish Flat Matte Gold Sequins from the Neat & Tangled shop:

Make sure you check out my For Sale page.  I added a couple things:)

  6. Such a pretty card. Love the colors. (Yes, aren't those containers for embossing powder so much easier? One of the best storage decisions I've made).
