The main focal image was created with stamps from Art Impressions Watercolor Series and was colored with a combination of Marvy LePlume and Tombow markers on watercolor paper. I used Spellbinders dies to cut a circle around the image and then adhered that to a slightly larger circle of dark brown cardstock.
I embossed a 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of kraft cardstock with the Tim Holtz Texture Fade Woodgrain embossing folder. I then used the direct to paper method to highlight the raised edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I adhered the focal image to this piece with foam tape, then adhered the Happy Birthday die-cut below the image with Tombow Adhesive Dots. This entire piece was adhered to a 5″ x 7″ dark brown card base.
I attached a 4-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ piece of gold Magic Mesh below the embossed piece. Then adhered a twine bow with a glue dot centered on the Magic Mesh.
