Birthday Beginning, a photo by debstamps on Flickr.
*Well...this was easy. I apparently have the option to share directly from my Flickr account and blog a photo. I am learning aaaaaaall kinds of new things now that I've started blogging!
To make the card: I dug out my ol' stamping wheels, and made this plaid background; embossed my Hero Arts Magical Background stamp on some green cardstock, and colored in the circle design with colored pencil--this month's featured technique over at Hero Arts [click on that typewriter to the right and you can go see for yourself!]
Next I punched some different circles from the panel, and used them to embellish these die cut flowers. also used a little chalk over the embossing in the largest flower. Grouped them together for effect and I had a nice little birthday bouquet!
What's your favorite way to personalize die cuts? I'd love to hear your ideas!
