Happy Birthday **Just Imagine**

Here is pretty card I made for my mother.  Her birthday is this month and I wanted to create something special just for her.  A special card for a very special lady!!

I primarily used the 4.5in Pastel Cardstock in various colors, almost everyone one!!

I used my wonderful Kreaxions Circle Cutter from Just Imagine to create all the circles.  I just opened up the dimensions little bit, by about 1-2 mm, to create the larger dimension of a circle so they nested nicely into each other into groups of 3 and then ran them through my Cuttlebug with embossing folders or with circle enhancing elements to create dimension and texture to the cardstock.

I even ran the purple background paper through the embossing machine 2 different times with two different
embossing folders to add even more dimension and texture.

After all the papers were embossed with various designs I then used the Sand It Gadget to sand the tops of the papers to allow the beautiful undertones of the paper to show through and then inked the edges in a light brown chalk ink.

The background paper of the card is in the beautiful Aquarium cardstock.  I needed something a bit bigger as a background to the card so I used a 12x12 sheet cut to size and the colors matched perfectly!!  I then used the same Sand It Gadget and sanded down the cardstock to let the colors come through.

Supplies Used
Embossing - ProvoCraft & Spellbinders
Flower - Prima
Ink - Clearsnap
Twine - American Crafts
Stickers - Kaisercraft
