This card features the “Henna” embossing folder by Darice, a pretty folder I have had for a long time but hadn’t used before. I love the detail of the design and am really glad I “discovered” it in my drawer today – lol!
I embossed a piece of white card stock, and then I lightly sponged Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Ink over the entire surface with a blending tool. I cut the purple “happy” from the center of the inked, embossed panel using the “In a Word: Happy Cutaway” die by Winnie & Walter (no longer in business). The hole was eventually covered with the greeting panel.
I cut a second “happy” from black and offset the two die cuts for a shadow effect. I created a mask to stamp just the “birthday” part of a “happy birthday” stamp and paired that with my layered die cuts on a white panel.
Thin, black mats and a white card base, and this card was done…
Thanks for checking out my card project!

ohlala, this is very pretty and the details are eye catching.
Pretty card! So fun when you rediscover something you own and then use it.
Beautiful!. The embossing folder really makes and impact. I like to be able to cut something out of a panel that will be covered (when I remember to do it) and Happy with the offset black really stands out.
This is so beautiful and that embossing folder is gorgeous. Love the colors as well.
Very pretty and the folder is wonderful
I love this! The purple is a soft and pretty look, but the style of the henna and the happy die are both modern. Great job!
Awesome colors and embossing folder.
This is so beautiful Lisa. I love the ef and how you colored it. The black matting makes the whole thing pop.
