Birthday Wreaths

 I need several birthday cards this month, so over the next week or so, I'll be sharing some of them.  This first one came about because I've been lusting over the new Pink Fresh Studio Washi Tapes with gold accents in them.  The ones I want are currently sold out, so I thought I'd take an old Pink Fresh Studio stamp and die set and try and get the same results with gold embossing.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out, but now I can't get a decent photo of it to show you!   So I'll show you the card first....

supplies: white and distress watercolor cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio Floral Elements Wreath and matching die, gold pearl and Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powders, Zig markers and water, Wplus9 Doodle Buds sentiment, Pink Fresh Studio Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die, adhesive foam 

.....and a much better picture to show you the lovely glow the pearl gold embossing gives.

The gold pearl is on the light side, so for the sentiment I switched to a regular gold embossing powder.

If you have this gold pearl powder, give this a try if you've never done so - I think you'll love the results!

While I had these Floral Elements out I made another card, this time using brighter colors, alcohol markers, and a real potpourri of supporting elements.

supplies: white cardstock, aqua gingham patterned paper, Floral Elements wreath and matching dies, Paper Smooches Fab Frames die, Simon Happy Everything die, Memory Box Open Studio Big and Little Words sentiment, adhesive foam to lift wreath and words

As always, thanks for coming by today!
