Epic Celebration and Embossing Paste Birthday Card

I needed a birthday card for a young man who is quite musical, so I immediately turned to the new Epic Celebration set.  I paired it with the embossing paste, which was colored with Cajun Craze reinker to make the brick background.  A little bit of coloring and the card came together beautifully.


The guitar was colored using ink pads and a blender pen.

The brick wall has lots of texture from the embossing paste.

Epic Celebration Z Fold Record Card

Who remembers records a/k/a vinyl?  I do . . . I had lots of them and remember saving up my allowance to get the newest release.  I tried to recreate those records on this Z Fold Card.


This close up shows the record a bit better.

Epic Celebration Money Card

Who  remembers getting money cards for their birthday??  I do!   Those were the days before gift cards.  I  went back in time and designed this one using the new Epic Celebrations stamp set. Since the money holder is a non-standard card size, I made an envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

Embossing with Adhesive Sheets

This is the third card we made at card class last weekend.  The other cards were made by using Tear & Tape to heat emboss.  Along those same lines, this one is made by using adhesive sheets to heat emboss.  The copper embossing powder used to heat emboss looks awesome when it's further embossed using the Woodland Embossing Folder.


This closeup shows the embossed piece in detail:
