(2022 c014) Pink Fresh Spring Bday

For the yellow background I followed Jennifer McGuire’s techniques (with my own twist of using the die to do the embossing and stamping instead of using an embossing folder) called Fast Techniques for Embossing Folders. I first applied Versamark Ink to the cutting edges of the die called Pink Fresh Geo Star 1 and using the silicone embossing mat, ran it through the die cutting machine.

Then I applied dark blue embossing powder & heat embossed, then I ran it through the machine again with the cutting sandwich.

The flowers were stamped with a discontinued set called Bloom from Pink Fresh Studio (they have lots of others to choose from). The big sentiment was stamped using Extra Grand Sentiments by Just Rite which is sadly no longer in business. The amazing friend sentiment is from Hero Arts called Friends CL351 .

    Bright & beautiful!!!
    It’s perfectly fitting for the Easter Season with the geometric pattern you’ve used here (just moho, of course)! The main bloom in the center is the eye-catcher on this lovely card, and works well to draw in peepers, as it did me!
    Thank you for sharing this with The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!!
