Have a wonderful Birthday!

Hello my friends!! Hope you are having a great day! Today is sunny and cold here, not the best combination, but I like it better than gray days.

Today's card comes from this picture from Pal Paper Arts


and this my take.I got inspired from the colors and the gold in the picture.  I used one of the new stamp sets from Gina K. Designs and illustrated by Theresa Momber, this set is called "The Giving Tree"

Directions:
  • Make card from Ivory Cardstock (4.5" square)
  • Mat and stitch a piece of Ivory (3.75" square)) and Good as Gold. Adhere to card.
  • Mat and stitch a piece of Ivory (3" square) and Good as Gold. Tie ribbon around and add a bow. Adhere to card.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of Good as Gold cardstock using Circle Nestabilities. Add to card.
  • Stamp images onto Ivory Cardstock in VersaMark Ink, add Gold embossing powder and heat it up. Die-cut it with Circle Nestabilities. Adhere to card with Foam tape.

Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: Ivory, Good as Gold (Gina K. Designs)
  • Stamps: The Giving Tree (Gina K. Designs)
  • Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
  • Embellishments: White Organdy Ribbon (Gina K. Designs), Mini pearls.
  • Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Gold embossing powder, Embossing heat gun, Sewing machine, Adhesive.
I am submitting this card also to Caardvarks Challenge : Monochromatic

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!
