An Embossed Birthday Card with Inked & Tiled

Today I have an embossed birthday Card with Inked & Tiled.

An Embossed Birthday Card with Inked & Tiled

This is a special-embossed card. It is not embossed one way, but actually two! There is embossing paste mixed with ink and some dry embossing is done with an embossing folder.

I also had a lot of fun incorporating some color into this one. The ink color, Blueberry Bushel is used three different ways!!

Before I share how I made this card, here are the three ink colors that you will need to make it.

Now, on to the card!

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, score and fold at 4 ¼” to form your card base.
  • Place a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Basic White cardstock on a scrap piece of paper and place a few drops of Blueberry Bushel ink on a clear Stampin’ Block. Drop some water from one of your Water Painters on to the ink, smear it around a bit, and flick the ink on to the Basic White cardstock. Do this by tapping about 1” up from where the brush begins. (see photo)

  • Once the ink is dry, adhere the piece to your card base.
  • Place another piece of Basic White cardstock, this time measuring 3” x 4 ¼”, on a piece of scrap paper or your Silicone Craft Sheet. Lay the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask on top and secure in place with removable tape.
  • Scoop some Embossing Paste on to a Silicone Craft Sheet, add two to three drops of Blueberry Bushel ink, and mix with your Palette Knife.

  • Smear the embossing paste over the decorative mask nice and smooth, ensuring evenness and full coverage.

  • Slowly peel off the mask and let the paste dry.

  • Sandwich a 3” x 4 ¼” piece of Pecan Pie into your Quatrefoil Tile embossing folder and run through your Cut & Emboss machine.
  • Layer and adhere the Blueberry Bushel embossed piece over the Pecan Pie embossed piece diagonally. Attach both to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Time to stamp

  • Stamp your flowers and leaves on a piece of Basic White cardstock using the following colors; Blueberry Bushel, Pecan Pie (stamped off), and Mossy Meadow (stamped off). (stamp off means to ink up your stamp, stamp on a piece of scrap paper, then without re-inking your stamp, stamp your image where desired)
  • Fussy Cut your images and adhere to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (fussy cut means to cut out with your Paper Snips)
  • Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Blueberry Bushel ink.
  • Punch the sentiment and a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock with the Double Oval punch. Layer and adhere them together.
  • Fold a 2” piece of Pecan Pie Bordered ribbon in two, adhere it to the back of the sentiment, and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Attach three Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems as shown.
