Emboss Resist Birthday Card

I thought I would show you this fun and colorful birthday card today. This card was created using the emboss resist technique on Glossy Cardstock with the Playful Backgrounds stamp set.

How To Make This Emboss Resist Card:

Start with a card base of Pool Party cardstock and set it aside.

Cut some Glossy Cardstock and cut to fit the cardfront. Stamp the circles all over the glossy background using the Playful Backgrounds stamp set in Versamark ink– then add Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool.

Using the Sponge Brayer, roll some Berry Burst and Peekaboo Peach ink over the embossed background and wipe off any excess with a tissue.

Add some Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding to this layer and adhere to the cardbase with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Playful Backgrounds solid circles with Peekaboo Peach ink and then die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits dies. Die cut a mat layer for the greeting with Pool Party cardstock and the next size label die.

Adhere the die cuts together and add to the cardfront using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As a final touch, add some Glitter Enamel Dots around the greeting for some lovely sparkle!
