Birthday Wishes - Woodware USA Challenge 14

Every Monday Woodware USA issues a new challenge on their blog. Today's challenge (WWUSAC14) is to create a project using embossing - wet or dry. I used their Elegant Cameos set; which you may recognize from last week's post, to create today's card. The thought in my head for this card was to create a 'wall' of vintage portraits.

I paired one of the silhouettes with a scalloped frames from the set, then stamped it multiple times onto red cardstock. All of these, except one, were stamped with watermark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The last image was inked up with black ink, then clear embossed. Next I stamped "Birthday Wishes" onto a thin strip of vellum. After adhering this across the front of the card, I surrounded the sentiment with clear gems. I like the way the vellum allows just a little of the stamped background to show through. To tie the sentiment into the images a bit more, I added another clear gem to the center of the bow on the black-embossed image.

Make sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge HERE.
