A Chevron Embossed Happy Birthday

With this month's special - Get a FREE embossing folder with the purchase of 2 packs of cardstock (single color or combo), you are going to be seeing alot of embossed artwork on my blog!  I got my folders last week, and I just LOVE playing with them.

Yesterday I created this card for my daughter's birthday.  She turned 24!  WOW..... hard to believe.  I came across the colors over at the Paper Players challenge and knew immediately that I wanted to use them for her card.  I combined the colors with the sketch over at the Sweetest Thing.

The colors in the Paper Players challenge were Midnight Muse, Crisp Cantaloupe and Gold.  I used Close To My Heart's colors of Outdoor Denim, Sorbet and for my gold I used our Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape.  I adhered the washi tape to a piece of white cardstock and then cut it to the size I needed.   The polka dots were easy to line up so I was able to make the cardstock as wide as I needed.
The birthday cake was first stamped in Sorbet and then I stamped it again in Outdoor Denim and Desert Sand and cut out the pieces that I wanted to layer onto the cake.  Since the Desert Sand was not 'gold' enough for me, I used my Gold Marker to color the cake stand.

I used the Chevron Embossing folder and the Belated Birthday stamp set.

Be sure to check out my February Special Tab HERE for all the details on how to get an embossing folder for FREE!!   Recipe for my card follows below.
