  1. Using your favourite nesting dies or die cutting machine, cut out a frame, background and tag in cream cardstock.
  2. Using your WOW Everyday Sentiment stamps, stamp out the Happy Birthday on the tag.
  3. Take the frame and push it into your Versamark ink pad to cover the frame in ink, sprinkle WOW Vintage Champagne over the frame and heat set.
  4. In a foil case, mix up 1/4 teaspoon of both Totally Teal and Vintage Champagne.
  5. Ink up your WOW Brocade Stamp with Versamark and place the cardstock shape on the stamp, rubbing all over to transfer the ink.
  6. Sprinkle mixed powders over design and heat set. Tip back the excess mixed powder in the foil case and add 1 teaspoon of WOW Melt-It and mix up. Holding case with a peg, heat from underneath.
  7. Once all molten pour into WOW Rose Quartet Silicone Mould, I used the second size. Let it set, this will take less than a minute.
  8. Place foam pads on the back of the frame and adhere to the card front.
  9. Tie a bow with the twine and adhere it.

Wow! This Brocade Birthday Card is drop dead gorgeous!!! I love its shimmer and twinkle and that is seeing it on paper...must be really beautiful in person! This total card has a wonderful mixed media feel to it. It might be easier to use the VersaMark re-inker to paint the frame. I'll probably change it up and use a fabric flower as well. Thanks for this wonderful inspiration!!!
