Faux Embossed Birthday


It started with a sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches and a technique, and a new Birthday die... The card was made with patterned paper from Carta Bella Paper Flower Garden cut with Altenew's oval frame die. The accent flowers were fussy cut from the patterned paper.

The sentiments are from the new Gina K kit.  I watched this video link at Understand Blue with so many fun ways to sparkle up your die cut sentiments. She said her favorite was packing tape on colored card stock. Yes!!!  It looks like I embossed it with clear or covered it with Glossy Accents...but it's packing tape. Quick and easy and shiny!  What a perfectly awesome hack.  Thank you 

Beyond the Blue for sharing the link and the challenge.
