Embossed Happy Birthday

Well, folks, here I am! I am not sure I remember how to do this but I am going to post a card I made for a few challenges!!! Hang on tight, and let’s see if I can still do this!!

~~My Card~~


I made this card using an Swirls embossing folder by Darice  and I stamped images from the Altenew stamp set – Persian Motifs. I embossed them in gold and watercolored them with my “ziggy‘s”. I took a square of cardstock and pressed each of the edges on my Versamark ink pad and then added the embossing powder to it! I layered my watercolored image on this square that was now lined with a gold border. I tore the edge, applied some Versamark ink to that edge and embossed there as well!! I tied some gold cording around the card and knotted it!!

I made this card for ~
