Birthday Warm and Cozy

I'm stopping in for a quick post with another Beau image from DigiStamp Boutique's Offer of the Month. She's Birthday Beau.

I used my prismacolor markers on Beau and sponged Vintage Photo ink around the edges after rounding the corners. Matting is a dark red from my local paper store rounded a couple of corners on that one too. I had made some background paper a while ago and had it in a stash pile that I rounded the corners and placed on some Crumble Cake cardstock. I believe the technique I used is embossing folder first, then ink up a brayer to run across the raised texture and lastly use a mister filled with water to spread the ink a smidge (tiny amount). I stamped a sentiment from Stampin Up's Fresh Cuts and cut it out with Spellbinders Large Labels to tuck underneath the mat.

This is the first time I've done a ribbon technique like this and I didn't want to make a mess of my layout trying it out. My quick fix was to put some red line tape on a piece of scrap kraft paper and then if it turned out I'd adhere it to the card. That worked out so I wouldn't ruin the card and waste any ribbon!

After everything was on the card I grabbed my new favorite pen, Spica Clear glitter pen, and quickly traced a center line over all the embossing of the background paper. It doesn't show up in my photos ~at all~ but it looks really nice.

Thanks for checking out my creative puddle today!
