Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Perpetual Birthday + Gold Embossing. Celebrate! Close Up

One day, I will show you in the notebook that I have that goes with me everywhere. I scribble ideas and notes in it wherever I go. If a colour palette catches my eye, it goes in there. If I see a layout of maybe some paving stones, that gets sketched.  Everything goes in there!

Back in August, I went on a mini break with the family and that involved a 4 hour car journey.  Well, the boys were happy watching DVDs in the back of the car, so Chris and I chatted away while I scribbled down loads of different things.  I’ve no idea what prompted the colour palette of pink, green and gold, but I rather like it!

I used the new Thick Whisper White cardstock to create the card blank and added 2 layers that I popped up with dimensionals.

Perpetual Birthday Calendar is a stamp set that I love, so the first thing I did was get those gold butterflies on first with the Gold Embossing Powder.  The leaves are stamped with Wild Wasabi and the scatter of flowers are done in Blushing Bride.

I love heat embossing and the stylish finish that you get with it, so taking the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set, I embossed the sentiment too and then punched it with the Washi Label Punch.

For a scribbled note of 3 colours and nothing else, I think I did okay!

  1. Lovely card, beautiful embossing of this sweet butterflies. The images appear like they are being carried by nice breeze.
    Just beautiful Sam, thank you for sharing.

  2. Lovely card. I noticed most cards are tall, fold at top. I usualy do fold at side, only occasionally on top.
