I stamped the NBUS dogwood stamp (Hero Arts, Butterflies #3) in Crème brulee pigment ink (Studio Calico) and then heat-embossed the images in HA ultra fine clear embossing powder. To give the flowers a little more definition, I coloured the inner parts and the outline with a Derwent Coloursoft pencil in grey white. The sentiment (HA, It's your birthday) was heat embossed in SSS white ep. The butterfly (HA, Butterflies #3) was heat embossed onto a snippet of vellum and die cut using the matching die.
To finish off, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die (SSS) and mounted it flat onto my card base (PTI, Soft stone).
