Happy Henna

Happy Henna


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!

  1. 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.
