Thanks Sheila for having me as a designer and allow us all to post in your lovely blog.
My son's teacher had a birthday coming up and I thought to use my copic markers and a cute cute digi image from sylvia zett's wee line called Birthday Baby to make her a card. The digi image can be found here - http://www.weestamps.com/?page_id=27
I was wondering what colors to use and was inspired by the scrapbitz copics challenge for this month - bright fun colors. And of course I had to use my new embossing folders - Marianne designables which I got from dutchpapercrafts. They are so lovely to play with.
Here is a card
The border is using spellbinder mega dies - Parisan Accents. I used the remaining blue paper (mat cardstock) after cutting the border for the inside of the card
The embossing is using Mariannes designables - DS0916 - Anja's dots. You can see the pictures of all the lovelies here - http://shop.sweetstamps.com/EMBOSS-CUT-FOLDERS_c210.htm.
But I got mine from dutchpapercrafts. It is a cutting and embossing folder as you can see on the pink cardstock in front. But as I didn't want the inside to be cut like that I embossed half the card and then turned it around and embossed the other half. You can see the flowers going the other way.
The sentiment is from Anna Griffin stamps. To put the gift card in I just cut out a cardstock - rectangle with tabs.
