Happy Birthday flower
This is my first try at an inlaid die card.
I stamped the background using an embossing folder as the stamp (distress inks) and spritzed with gold glimmermist. I love to make my own background and like the effect of this technique, kind of casual and arty.
I die cut the words from the background, from orange card and from black card. Mattted the background onto black then inlaid the first diecut layer. At this stage I decided I wanted to leave the 'birthday' at one layer, but stacked the 'happy' with a total of four, making the top layer the same as the background. A stamped flourish, purchased flower and fancy brad to complete.
