Again, quite a lot of detail on this card. For example, I've used heat embossing and dry embossing and a combination of both.
To start with, I stamped the Dressed in Roses stamp on stamping card and a mat for of patterned Bo Bunny paper using Encore Ultimate Metallic Ink in purple. This is such a lush and vibrant ink pad, but to allow me to colour over with ProMarkers, I used clear embossing powder over the stamped image and then heat set it. A quick spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist provided a pretty sheen to the final image.
I trimmed the background mat to size then ran it through an 8x8 Embossalicious Flower Power Embossing Folder. To enhance the dry embossing against the busy pattern, I rubbed over the raised embossed pattern with a versmark ink pad and applied clear embossing powder before heat setting. This gives a really textured finish to the background.
You can see on this picture where I've scattered tiny glittered butterflies as accents all over the card. This is actually the "waste" from my Butterfly Border punch (although I punched this from offcuts of glittered stardream card just for this project).
To keep with the Butterfly theme (what teenage girl doesn't like both Butterflies and Dresses?), I die cut a butterfly and flower image using the Tonic Studio's Maria Butterfly Beautiful Die, which I then accented with glitter and more scattered, tiny butterflies.
The sentiment was computer generated and then die cut with my Gothic Square Die Set. I created my cardstock mats for these by scanning the die-cut shapes into my Cameo Silhouette, then traced them and offset them. It's so easy to create perfectly sized mats this way.
Here's one more look at this summary teenage birthday card.
