Love the newest releases from the Spellbinders Edgeabilities® line! I created a border to accent the card and act as a landing area for the ribbon and flower embellishment :)
To enhance the embossed border, I did a faux letterpress using chalk ink to stencil the INSIDE of the die template (the cut side).
Then I cut/embossed with the yellow cardstock. Note I am using those Spellbinders Junior Plates for use in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine. For more information, visit Scrap-Mart: Spellbinders Junior Plates Are Available post here.
If you want a deeper color, just add more ink to the die template. I inked mine lighter for a more subtle look.
I ink misted my patterned paper (I ordered through ScrapAce for a FABULOUS deal of the day!) and cut/embossed with Blossom Three die template to create an embellishment for the card. Stamp the sentiment, place the die template over the stamped words and cut/emboss. Assembled as shown and you're done!
Here's another look...
Happy birthday, mom! お誕生日、おめでとうございます! Love you! xo
