Green LEGO Birthday Note Card

Offspring3 needed a small birthday card for a little boy turning 4. I dug through my paper stash, and found a scrap of green LEGO paper that was large enough for a note card. The LEGO paper is textured – the dots are raised, and the brick edges are debossed.

I really need to see if I can find more of this paper! (off to the Google machine I go!)

Floral Birthday Card with Tinted Embossing Paste Background

I am still playing with embossing paste here. For this background, I mixed a little bit of Almost Amethyst ink into the clear embossing paste before spreading it across the stencil.

I die cut a flower out of green, and used the “petals” for leaves.

Almost Amethyst (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Provo Craft (flower), stencil – Neat & Tangled, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Wendy Vecchi/Studio 490 clear, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

Primary Birthday Card

A very basic card! Primary colors and no real embellishments. I embossed only part of the background and then centered the sentiment on that line of demarcation.
